Manzanilla En Rama is a unique and 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 Pago Miraflores, this Manzanilla is aged in Sanlúcar de Barrameda in Valdespino's 16th century Misericordia bodega. The bodega is exposed to the Atlantic breeze, which provides this wine with a delicious saline complexity. This wine undergoes 5 years of biological aging under flor.
Tasting Notes: A subtle saline aroma leads to delicate notes of yeast. 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.

"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."
