Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I enjoyed and drank several bottles of the NV Manzanilla Maruja while visiting the zone. This is a new label from an old solera that used to belong to Terry and was purchased by Juan Piñero who manages to find a good balance between freshness and age. This is bottled with an average age of seven-eight years under flor. It has a fine nose, with chamomile and white flowers intermixed with shy notes of sea breeze, elegant and subtle. The palate is really sharp, very salty and fine like a textbook Manzanilla. They do some ten bottling per year totaling 6,000 bottles. A real bargain.
