Winemaker's Notes:

`Very rich almost painfully intense wine pungent freshness and great subtlety. Incredibly long aftertaste features a hint of almond skin an intense fruitiness and the tang of the sea. Perhaps the perfect apertif.`-International Wine Cellar

Great Sherry wine that has a sea and almond taste to it. Reminds me of sitting on the beach and being sprayed with the sea water breaking on the shore. Wonderful wine that would go great with many fish dishes!

Pale straw/green tint, it couldn’t be more pure; the ethereal nose is a slice of Sherry heaven — tart aromas of green apple, lemon peel, flor (yeast), and almonds enchant the sense of smell with delicacy and aplomb in all four nosing passes — a gem of a bouquet; on palate, the citrusy/doughy tartness greets the taste buds and immediately cleanses them — the goal of manzanilla, which is to stimulate and not overpower, is accomplished by this squeaky clean, refreshingly tart, and altogether subtle winner; I would have given a fourth star had there been more of a salty/briny tang; nevermind, just go out and buy it to have on hand as a superlative aperitif; as with all finos and manzanillas, be sure to consume it soon after buying; this winner ages over the span of seventeen criadera sequences.

Dry and refreshing, with apple, straw and nutty flavors as underscored by a salty tanginess. Lightweight and balanced, this is very appealing. Break out the almonds and olives. Drink now.

Lime and citrus blossom aromas introduce this delicate, apple-flavored Sherry. Itandrsquo;s round and soft, with light but persistent flavors, and a salt air tang in the end. A refreshing style.

Delivers up aromas of the sea, as well as the intense taste of Chinese dried prunes.

The benchmark among fino-style Sherries is La Gitana. Simply put, itandrsquo;s a classic. Pour yourself a copita of this beauty and sip it while munching some olives, peanuts or pistachios. Shazzam! Youandrsquo;re transported to a whitewashed village in Andalusia. Aromas of mushroom and yeast are just as they should be. And deep within are subtle flavors of marzipan and citrus. The long, salty, bone-dry finish cleanses the palate and primes your appetite for better things to come.

Bright, with saline, sunchoke and blanched almond notes backed by a piercing, chalk-framed finish. This is all precision and cut. Drink now.

Nutty, honeyed, Resinous aromas and flavors are followed by a round, medium- to full-bodied structure. it shows good intensity, and a walnut note kicks in on the finish. Drink now.
