How can one not love this wine? When I close my eyes and let the Orleans Borbon Manzanilla Fina aroma's take me over, I imagine fresh breezes from the ocean air. This wine is incredibly alluring, focused and delicious, perfect with sashimi. Medium straw color, strong and focused aromas of rancio and nuttiness, excellent depth; medium bodied, lively and persistent on the palate; dry, fine acidity, well balanced; rancio, salty and briny flavors, excellent; medium finish, crisp aftertaste. Now let's head over to the closest and fresh sushi bar and enjoy this Manzanilla. (Tasted: June 17, 2015, San Francisco, CA)
Full of aromas of iodine and nutes, this wine has a depth of acidity that makes it feel almost citric. A complex Manzanilla blended from wines five years of age, it has the freshness of the sea breeze in Sanlucar, making it an ideal aperitif.
