    Domecq Manzanilla
    Sold Out
    $15.79
    Pedro Domecq's Manzanilla of Jerez, a smooth sherry with a subtle bouquet, is what is affectionately referred to in Spain as 'Gypsy Wine' because the 'Gitanos' or Spanish Gypsy people there seem to love it so. Being Gitano myself I, of course, found it delightful and a pleasure to sip! Aged in what I think are Chekoslovakian cedar kegs, (I was at the winery once) it's just the thing for lossening up the vocal chords in the wee small hours of morning to help one sing a sad saeta or spirited 'cante chico' flamenco song to finsh off the evening! Made from Palmino grapes it's at its best when ice cold and served with shellfish, almonds or cheeze. If you're not Gypsy you might not understand the taste but you can try! To us it's delicious, light, airy and, thank goodness, very DRY. Buy it and impress your friends with your insight into the Gypsy duende (soul) of the Sacromonte-La Chana regions of Granada!"

It's light, as I said, very dry and the Palomino grapes used are aged in the finest old casks from the Domecq cellars. I've experienced them in person! The wine's bouquet is subtle and this sherry is best served ice called with shellfish, almonds or cheeze.

    Hidalgo La Gitana Manzanilla (500ML)
    $18.99
    Despite the negative reviews already attributed to this sherry, some dissapointingly calling it 'mediciny' tasting, Manzanilla is what is affectionately referred to in Spain as 'Gypsy Wine' because the 'Gitanos' or Spanish Gypsy people there seem to love it so. Being Gitano myself (La Gitana means 'the Gypsy Girl') I, of course, found it delightful and a pleasure to sip! Just the thing for loosening up the vocal chords in the wee small hours of morning to help one sing a sad saeta or spirited 'cante chico' flamenco song! If you're not Gypsy you won't understand the taste but you can try! To us it's delicious and, thank goodness, very DRY.
