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!

Lemon zest, petrol, sea salt. Beautifully aromatic, with an ephemeral character that seems forceful yet remains light on its feet. Quite snappy in the mouth with excellent bite and a thoroughly cleansing finish. Classic.

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.

Consistently one of the finest traditional manzanillas you’ll ever taste, La Gitana might as well be the Webster’s entry for the category; pale straw color, salty seaside freshness and a dry, tangy, yet rich flavor. And that flavor lingers after each sip, too, like sea spray.

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.

The benchmark among fino-style Sherries is La Gitana. Simply put, it’s a classic. Pour yourself a copita of this beauty and sip it while munching some olives, peanuts or pistachios. Shazzam! You’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.

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.
