APPELATION: Sanlucar de Barrameda
VARIETALS: 100% Palomino Fino
WINEMAKER: Antonio Barbadillo
ABOUT THE WINE:The man behind these magic is Antonio Barbadillo of the historical Sanluqeno winery, Barbadillo. This delicious Manzanilla is from an area called Las Canas, which is located within Pago Balbaína. The wines of Sacristia are the true definition of an 'en rama' Manzanilla with zero filtration, even just before bottling. Nada! This 10 year old Manzanilla has a thick and healthy flor from multiple criaderas.
TASTING NOTES: This is a serious Manzanilla bottled at around seven or eight years under flor. In all releases since 2010, it's interesting to note the evolution of the wines in bottle as they take aromas of curry, sweet spices, cumin, quince, apricots and caramel (similar to what you may find in a low alcohol Amontillado).
