Manzanilla en rama Solear – saca de invierno 2015 

  
The razorbill has landed and this is another lovely manzanilla.

It is a lovely gold colour, aromatic on the nose and is wonderfully expressive on the palate – vegetable, herbal and nutty. These spend 7 years or so under flor (in fact I read somewhere that these are technically manzanilla pasadas) but the yeast is still there in force and they seem to pack more herbs and less minerals than many older Sanlucar wines. 

Looking at the note on the back label they also emphasize the flavours but whereas they talk about an “explosion of light and flavour” I find it a bit more solid and meaty, particular by comparison to the autumn edition. 

No doubt about it though: another juicy, flavourful little bottle.
