Barbiana Manzanilla Pasada Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

SKU #1260944 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Barbiana Manzanilla Pasada, also from Palomino grapes from the Miraflores vineyard, is a 30,000-bottle selection with a nose of salty sunflower seeds, a strong Manzanilla character and an intense palate, long, with subtle saline flavors and a very dry finish. I cannot see the pasada character here (it’s what it said on the label), but it is a superb Manzanilla. Drink 2013-2014. (LG)  (8/2013)

K&L Notes

The Barbiana Manzanilla Pasada comes from a solera from Rodriguez La-Cave, purchased in 1978. The Rodriguez La-Cave bodega was located in the barrio alto where it benefited from the poniente sea breezes. Today, the barbiana is still kept in the highest part of the bodega to allow the solera to continue to benefit from sea breezes. Manzanilla pasada is a style that is aged 100% under "flor" for longer than usual, about 5-6 years, and the flor begins to dissipate and create flavors that lean toward amontillado. Flavors such as almond, lemon, seaweed, mushrooms and hazelnuts burst from the glass and would pair in a lovely way with foods with umami flavors. (Olivia Ragni, K&L Sherry liaison)
