Blanca Reyes manzanilla or fino?

It had to be done – was about to polish off the manzanilla when I realized I had a bottle of the fino lurking.

Amazing difference in aroma – the fino is all yeast, hay bales, and wood shavings, and by comparison the manzanilla smells as sweet as pineapple juice. The colours too are a good two shades apart – although the manzanilla has been open a couple pf weeks.

On the palate the differences are not as pronounced – the manzanilla is a touch softer and less buttery, maybe not quite as dry. 

Really interesting experiment – hard to choose between these two but I think I would go fino – seems a bit more robust.
