Callejuela Manzanilla Fina SherryTabula Rasa
The Blanco family philosophy has always been to carefully orchestrate a later harvest, beginning around the 2 of September, while many of their neighbors start around the 14th or 15th of August. This enables them to pick grapes with higher brix, needing less degrees of alcohol dilution when fortifying with the grape spirts used to make Manzanillas and Sherries. Also, and maybe most importantly, they strive to maintain the purest Palomino grape expression as possible, and the longer the hang time on vine, the more influence of the albariza soil is transmitted.
A delightfully playful, fruit forward Manzanilla with notes of pear, almond, celery and fennel, and a delicate hit of pungency. Soft floral notes and a luscious texture make this Manzanilla friendly and inviting.
