La Guita Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda
*Smart Buys* This round white has texture and grip, with rich and focused flavors of apple, almond, green olive and brine. Offers plenty of fruit, but remains grounded thanks to the briny character. Expressive and balanced.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV La Guita Manzanilla has always had a very strong and marked character of brine, green olives and mustard seeds, with an overall sweet sensation. The medium-bodied palate is precise, very dry and intense, with some brine and rancio flavors and great length. The quality of this wine has increased notably in the last few years, and represents very good value and is a great introduction to Manzanilla, as availability should not be a problem with 2,000,000 bottles filled per year. As an advantage, the back label shows the month and date of the bottling, and should be drunk within a year or two. Drink 2013-2014.
This is a long time favorite Manzanilla amongst folks in Sherry country as well as throughout Andalucia. Once I was told how many thousands of bottles are sold and consumed during the Feria de Sevilla and could hardly believe it! This is a very fresh bottling, showing the deliciously bright, appley fruit which young Manzanilla should show. La Guita would make for a classic aperitif or accompaniment to your favorite pre-dinner snacks. Bottled 02/2013.
