VALDESPINO MANZANILLA DELICIOSA H

Wine Region: Xeres, Spain

Grape: Palomino Fino

Tasting Notes

Fresh apple and citrus, with lots of dried herbs and green olives. The flor is easy to note. The minerality of Miraflores as well. Hints of warm shore sand and ropes. Almonds. Hay. Chamomile of course. Nice mix of fresh appeal and aged notes.

Sharper and more heavily flavoured than I was expecting from the nose. It's dry and saline, with a big savoury character, yet it stays fresh and nicely polished. Good acidity. Hazelnut, olive brine and minerals. Subtle notes of unripe pear. Light hints of herbs. Saline finish with citrusy notes.

About the Winery

After decades of market domination by insipidly sweet, mediocre wines, the world’s gaze is increasingly being drawn to Sherry’s treasures. This is the tiny proportion of wines still patiently aged in its ancient soleras, with their bracing dryness, thrilling complexity and inspiring antiquity.

And no greater treasures are emerging than those of Valdespino, the producer most steeped in history and rooted in tradition.
