Hijos de Rainera Perez Marin La Guita Manzanilla (375ML half-bottle)
The color is a lemon golden yellow. It is clear and fresh on the nose, with aromas indicating a very good biological aging, crystallized fruit, wild and floral notes, dried fruit, and almond. On the palate, it is light, tasty, enveloping, fresh, and persistent. A pale and delicate style of sherry with a salty tang from the sea.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Unique aromas of dried apples, lemon blossom, almonds and cream. Hints of seaweed. Full-bodied, yet focused and tight with lively acidity and a beautifully composed finish of fruit and flavor. Always a winner here. Screw cap.
Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in many styles from dry to sweet. True Sherry can only be made in Andalucía, Spain where the soil and unique seasonal changes give a particular character to its wines. The process of production—not really the grape—determine the type, though certain types are reserved for certain grapes. Palomino is responsible for most dry styles; Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria are used for blending or for sweet styles.
