Manzanilla En Eama is a unique, limited wine, that is specially selected to be bottled straight from the cask without any fining or filtering in order to enjoy its purest character.

Winemaking Notes: Produced entirely from Miraflores vineyards, this Manzanilla is aged in Sanlucar de Barrameda, in Valdespino's 16th century Misericordia bodega, exposed to the Atlantic breeze, which provides this wine with delicious saline complexity. This wine undergoes 5 years of biological aging under flor.

Tasting Notes: A subtle saline aroma leads to delicate notes of yeasts. The palate shows roasted almonds and has a ripe apple background. It is crispy and mineral with a long elegant aftertaste. Enjoy En Rama with seafood, smoked fish, or soup.

    The NV Manzanilla Deliciosa en Rama, from the saca de primavera 2017, is the yearly bottling of the Manzanilla from the winery in the Calle Misericordia in SanlĂșcar de Barrameda, very lightly filtered, unfined and with an average age of six years under flor. This is always a notch above the intensity, complexity and depth of a normal Manzanilla given the older age and the treatment of en rama. It's elegant, powerful, balanced and intense, with the telltale nose and palate of low tide character that provides that marine profile. Superb with food.
