Lustau Manzanilla "Papirusa" Delicate & Very Dry NV

Member Review by Dan:

Classy an classic Manzanilla. Pale gold, gem clear. Aroma of sweet almonds and salt air. Little to no oxidation evident in the nose or on the tongue. Clean, clear passionfruit in the mid-palate followed by bracingly dry finish of lime, salt? Very refreshing.

Textbook Manzanilla! Papirusa is a clean, mildly salinic offering with green banana and toast aromas. The palate is just salty enough, but the wine’s more about almond, apple and lemon peel than saline. And the feel and finish are nutty and warm. A full-bodied but refreshing style as only Lustau can do.

A bone dry Manzanilla from the town of Sanlucar de Barrameda, light and fresh, very tangy, clean and crisp with just a hint of saltiness.

A textbook Manzanilla, this has all the delicate simplicity of saline––almost citrus––flavors in a fresh, elegant and balanced wine that’s enchanting in its lightness. The hint of green olive in the finish brings to mind jamón Ibérico and fresh melon to match.

Give this Manzanilla a bit of air to reveal its scent of brine and salted almonds. Its rich flavors and textures combine into a creamy, nutty bisque. Then the finish cuts that richness with freshness. For manchego.
