3 in stock
Roving Sommelier loves fortified wines, especially the iconic Sherries produced in Andalusia in Southern Spain. Here, there are three main towns that make up “The Sherry Triangle” where sherries are produced. This Manzanilla – a form of dry Sherry – is produced at Bodegas Argueso located in the coastal town of Sanlucar de Barrameda. The Atlantic breezes allegedly give this fresh and bone-dry white wine its signature salty tang. What’s more this Manzanilla Pasada has been aged under a veil of ‘flor’ in a solera containing large, seasoned oak barrels for up to three years before bottling. Perfect served well-chilled as an aperitif with almonds and olives and/or with seafood and tapas dishes.
