      Winemaker Notes

      Aged for over 20 years in the solera, the Manzanilla Pasada is one of the family heirlooms kept in the bodega's Sacristia. For many generations this wine has been Ignacio's family's sherry of choice.

      La Cigarrera Manzanilla Pasada should be served cold (45°F).

      One of the treasures of Sanlucar, the Manzanilla Pasada of La Cigarrera spends two decades aging under its veil of flor. After years of protecting the wine from oxygen, the veil seems to have absorbed all the breezes off the sea. If you could make wine from oysters, this would be the result. Everything in this Manzanilla smells of iodine, sea salt and cresting ocean waves. And it's as refreshing as a plunge in the sea. A small delight of vibrant flavors to drink with salpicon de mariscos, the local seafood salad.

      La Cigarrera, 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.

      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 the British and American markets 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 a particular and unsurpassable 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. Sherry's main grapes include Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.

      Pedro Ximénez and Muscat, representing a tiny proportion of production can make some amazing single varietal sweet sherries but the vast number of styles are primarily based on the Palomino grape.

      Fino, from Jerez, and the similar style called Manzanilla, from the humid and cool coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, are the lightest styles and are meant for early consumption. Their creation is dependent on the action of flor, which are benevolent film-forming yeasts that make a floating veil on the surface of the wine, which aid in protecting it from oxidation.

      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 anywhere from five to twenty five years, becoming aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon. A sweetened Oloroso is a Cream sherry; a Pale Cream is one that has had the color removed.
