Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

#32 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

The standard of type and leader both in Spain and abroad. Manzanilla is the rarest of all authentic sherries, being uniquely site-specific in origin. Matured beneath a constant veil of yeast (called flor) as only occurs in beachfront and protected cliffside bodegas of sanlucar, giving Manzanilla a dry, haunting delicacy analogous to fine Champagne.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, with saline, sunchoke and blanched almond notes backed by a piercing, chalk-framed finish. This is all precision and cut."

okay so i dont know much about sherry....but... as a wine lover...I couldn't drink it. So different tasting from wine. Hate to admit it but poured it down the drain. I guess it must be an acquired taste

This reminds me of one of the first bottles of wine I ever opened (30 years ago), didn't drink it all, and let it sit in a warm cupboard for a month. Then try to drink it.. of course it had turned sour. This is what this Manzanilla tastes like. UGH. And I bought 4 bottles on wine.com recommendations!

This is an amazing wine to serve as a starter/apertif with roasted almonds, smokey dry meats, olives. Remember to serve it in a sherry glass! ...Proper porportion makes a difference in the experience of this fine wine.
