        Winemaker Notes

        La Cigarrera Manzanilla is aged four years on the lees before being bottled.

        Vibrant and fresh with aromas of yeasts and salinity. The wine on the palate is rich and substantial with a long finish.

        La Cigarrera, Jerez, Spain
        Bodegas La Cigarrera is located in the heart of Sanlucar de Barrameda. In 1758, this Almacenista began operations, and cellar master Ignacio Hildago began bottling his own Manzanilla in 1997. Ignacio is a ninth-generation cellar master, and all wines were previously sold to famous Sherry houses, including Lustau, for bottling. La Cigarrera refers to the cigarette/tobacco women who sold tobacco on the sidewalks of Sanlucar. It is a tribute to the pride, beauty, and history of this town.

        The key to the quality of La Cigarrera is the exceptional raw materials and the location of the winery. La Cigarrera Manzanilla is produced exclusively from vineyards in the Jerez Superior Denomination of Origin. Only wines aged in Sanlucar are allowed the DO Manzanilla. The unique microclimate of Sanlucar de Barrameda creates a very special "flor", or yeast, that grows naturally on the wines, protecting the wine from the atmosphere. This growth is actually affected by subtle differences in location within the town. La Cigarrera is located in the ideal center with proximity to the ocean, giving the wine its distinctive character.

        Jerez-Manzanilla

        View all wine

        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.

        Most sherries are dry and meant to pair alongside food but Americans have traditionally focused on the sweet ones. Sherry comes from only one place in the entire world, Andalucía, where the soil and unique seasonal changes give an unsurpassed character to its wines. The many styles change with the process of production, not really the grape, though certain styles are reserved for different grapes. The main grapes are Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.

        Pedro Ximénez can make some amazing sweet sherries. Cream Sherry is technically the sweetest, darkest style of Sherry, except sometimes Pedro Ximénez can be sweeter. The rest of the styles are dry and dependent on the action of flor, which are benevolent film-forming yeasts that make a floating veil on the surface of the wine and protect it from oxidation.

        Fino, from Jerez, and Manzanilla, from the humid and cool coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, are the lightest styles and are meant to be drunk young.

        Amontillado happens when a Fino’s layer of flor fades and the wine starts to oxidize. Quite simply it is an aged Fino that has a darker color and richer palate.

        When flor yeast dies unexpectedly, the result is Palo Cortado. Palo Cortado Sherries can behave like Amontillado on the palate but often show a greater balance of richness and delicacy.

        Oloroso never develops flor but is oxidized for five to twenty five years and become aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon.
