Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
It's very interesting to taste a soon-to-be-bottled Manzanilla alongside the same wine that's been in bottle for one year, as I sampled the NV Manzanilla Deliciosa en Rama that was going to be bottled in the spring of 2019 next to the wine that had been bottled the year before. This felt tremendously young, with even a touch of lemon skin, which I sometimes find in very young biological wines. I tasted this just before bottling, and it was just like drinking wine from the bota. The wine will settle in bottle, and the explosive character I saw will not make it to the shelves. This wine is always from the same botas, so the differences are more a matter of how long the wine has been in bottle. In any case, I loved what I tasted. 8,600 bottles.
Between 10ºC and 12ºC
Biological ageing for 6 years with the traditional Soleras system in American oak casks. Bottled without filtering.
