Herederos De Argueso "San Leon" Clasica Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

SKU #1060621

91 points and a Highly Recommended from the Wine Spectator: "Fascinating. Very tangy, from the first whiff to the intense finish, this manzanilla displays aromas and flavors of nuts and cooked apples allied to an almost creamy texture with buttery overtones. Drink now." (12/98) Here is a delicious manzanilla from this smaller independent sherry bodega located in Sanlucar de Barrameda. Their palomino grapes are grown in a few of the best pagos in the area: Tizon and Aņina, in the white, chalky "albariza" soils for which the region is famous. After a hand harvesting, a combination of free run juice and pressed juice are fermented in stainless steel vats, prior to a traditional solera aging program. This delicious, complete manzanilla shows both the characteristic bright and briny quality, along with some real richness and length. It just might be the best younger dry sherry we currently offer.

If you like rancio, this’d be your manzanilla! A robust nose of nuts, salt, rubber, yeast and bruised apple leads to a similarly bold palate of salty, rocky, yeasty, oily, rubbery flavors. This is dry, dry, dry and reminds me of the smell of very old wood; a taste of the great indoors? Absolutely lovely pairing with an aged manchego, I reckon this would call out the best from parmesan and other dry, aged cheeses, too.
