    Winemaker's Notes:

    #32 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

    The standard of type and leader both in Spain and abroad. Manzanilla is the rarest of all authentic sherries, being uniquely site-specific in origin. Matured beneath a constant veil of yeast (called flor) as only occurs in beachfront and protected cliffside bodegas of sanlucar, giving Manzanilla a dry, haunting delicacy analogous to fine Champagne.

    Critical Acclaim:

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

    okay so i dont know much about sherry....but... as a wine lover...I couldn't drink it. So different tasting from wine. Hate to admit it but poured it down the drain. I guess it must be an acquired taste

    This reminds me of one of the first bottles of wine I ever opened (30 years ago), didn't drink it all, and let it sit in a warm cupboard for a month. Then try to drink it.. of course it had turned sour. This is what this Manzanilla tastes like. UGH. And I bought 4 bottles on wine.com recommendations!

    This is an amazing wine to serve as a starter/apertif with roasted almonds, smokey dry meats, olives. Remember to serve it in a sherry glass! ...Proper porportion makes a difference in the experience of this fine wine.

    i did not realize when i ordered this that it was SHERRY and not a white wine (duh!). Nevertheless, it was delightful, especially with Spanish tapas such as manchego cheese and serrano ham. Will order again.

    Sorry people, but this is not wine: it's Sherry and of a special type, Manzanilla. It is a fino (very dry) style grown near the port of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Sherry is fortified wine. Unlike its kissing cousin, Port - brandy/ high proof alcohol is added after fermentation, not during. Thus Sherry is much drier. As to this particular Manzanilla, it is more than can be expected at this price. I can taste fruit and sea air- the latter reminiscent of the current fad of "fleur du sel" bon-bons. The salt strengthens or intensifies the flavour. Please reviewers, don't w[h]ine, complain or downgrade a product because your lack of knowledge. No, it's not sweet, like a port. No, the faint salt is not a mistake. it's not a "Sticky, not a Port, not a Tokaji, Ice or Sauterne. It is what it is: a good example of its kind.

    I would not buy this wine again. I thought it tasted more like cold medicine than anything else.

    The ST rating of 97, and the others' glowing reviews are confusing me, as the manzanilla I had, tasted of nothing more than spicy seawater. I know that the briney taste is characteristic of manzanilla, but there were absolutely no other flavors present.
