The polar opposite of packaging trends, this enigmatic creation has no visible label at all.
It is not one of the more aromatic manzanillas, but has a sweet aroma that is a bit more fruity than haybales – sweet dried herbs or maybe even dried apple flakes. There is also definitely some of the piercing cider/”catpiss” smell of the mosto coming through (I mean that in a good way).
A rich mouthfeel like a very light oil, then after the sweetish nose it comes across as tart – like cooking apples, then salty and savoury/herby in the mouth. Nicely balanced – tasty but fine and light, and long but fresh. I really like this – very good.
