Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There is a new Manzanilla from the masters of the style, the first new brand they release since they revolutionized the marked with their 'en rama' bottling. The NV Manzanilla Pasada en Rama Pastora differs from the Solear en Rama exclusively in the winery where the wine is aged, as it's bottled at a similar age, around nine years, and bottled untouched. This Manzanilla ages in the Pastora winery, but the wine is the same as the Solear. They are looking for a similar wine as the Solear en Rama and it is quite similar, but not exactly the same; the wine here feels a tad heavier, with more shoulders, a little wider in the palate. It's a matter of details. They will produce some 10,000 bottles per year in different lots, but the back label will mention the year of the bottling (and if you're into deciphering codes, L16-046, the lot, will tell you the day it was bottled).
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Biological ageing for 9 years with the traditional Soleras system in American oak casks. Bottled unfiltered.
