The Wine:

From their base in the coastal city of Sanlucar de Barrameda, the Barbadillo family has forged a reputation as one of the finest sherry producers in Spain. This particular manzanilla has been aged for 8 years, making it a ‘pasada’ style. The extra ageing adds complexity, body and a hint of oxidation as the layer of ‘flor’ begins to thin. It is also an ‘en rama’ – or ‘raw’ – manzanilla, meaning the sherry has been bottled straight from the cask with no fining or filtration.

A smooth yet complex start, followed by savoury touches of herbal bitterness and mineral notes. Yeasty yet fruity, with a long, warm saline finish. Great with olives or tapas bites.

Further Info:

The Barbadillo family are one of the key players in the Sherry trade. From their base in the coastal city of Sanlucar de Barrameda, at the very southwest tip of Spain, the family have forged a reputation as one of the biggest and best Sherry producers.

Never ones to rest on their laurels, the Barbadillo family continue to push the boundaries and set the trend in what is an increasingly challenging Sherry market. Barbadillo was founded by Don Beningo and Don Manuel Barbadillo in 1821. It was Don Beningo’s fortune, acquired through his business enterprises in Mexico, that allowed the family to purchase their first Bodega, the ‘Bodega del Toro’, near the ‘Castillo de San Diego’, in the heart of Sanlucar’s old high town. A vitally important location for maturing Sherry, the high town occupies the ridge of a hill overlooking the rest of Sanlucar, and the Atlantic Ocean. Its height gives unbeatable access to winds that blow in from the sea. This allows the Bodegas with their high ceilings and classic huge circular windows to regulate their temperature and capture moisture essential for propagating ‘flor’, a layer of yeast cells that float on the surface of the wine inside the casks. It is ‘flor’ that gives Manzanilla its character and instantly recognisable saline flavour.
