Manzanilla Papirusa


The only manzanilla (or sherry) on the menu here at Pajarita but it is a favourite and since it comes from Lustau a modest, but heartfelt, tribute to the great Manuel Lozano. 

It is the most basic of the Lustau wines but is very well made (technical details here) with an average age under flor of 4-5 years. Has that very aromatic, green apple nose of a wine with less time under flor but with sea air and minerals in the background, then a similar palate – a dash of aromatic juice and a spike of minerals, with a long, tasty finish.
