Manzanilla is the lightest and friskiest of the sherry styles, which makes it a wonderful aperitif and food wine. It's a fresh, almost salty and seaweed style, with aromas of nuts, camomile tea and green olives on the nose. The palate is light and breezy, with seaweed and nutty flavours, crisp acidity, and a bone-dry finish. Creamy oysters or sashimi would be great with this.
Ken Gargett says
The extraordinary black paintings of Goya in the Prado are reason enough to visit Madrid. But if you need another, there is this fantastic little bar in the backstreets just behind the touristy Plaza de Santa Ana called La Venencia, which serves nothing but sherry and sensational tapas. And what a wonderful drink good sherry is. Chill a half of this for the perfect post-work pick-me-up. Stop shaking your head, it's really good.Don't Buy Wine Without Me 2008
Max Allen & Peter Forrestal says
Freshness is everything with pale, bone-dry Spanish sherry like this - leave it too long after bottling, or leave it too long after you've opened the bottle, and the wine loses the essential chalky, sea-spray tanginess which makes it such a great drink with pre-dinner nibblies such as small olives and nuts. Lighter and more delicate than the Hidalgo wine also recommended.Quaff 2004
This definitively crisp, refreshing young white wine is always in spanky form. Camomile and oyster-shell aromatics, Chablis-like mid-palate fruit, long and tangy.
