Bodegas La Cigarrera, Manzanilla Sherry, Jerez, Spain (375ml - Half Bottle)

Bodegas La Cigarrera is located in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, an area considered the most prized area ofJerez's Golden Triangle of Sherry production.  The town sits on the edge of the sea, and the flor (the thin veil of yeast that sits atop sherry wines in partially filled casks) that settles atop the wines in this area is more affected by salty sea air than in other parts of the Jerez-Xérès-Sherry D.O. The house was founded in 1758, and today it's run by Ignacio Hidalgo, the ninth generation of his family to oversee operations in the bodega.

Grapes:100% Palomino Fino 

Farming: Lutte Rasionee

Terroir / Soil: Chalky albariza, located on the western edge of the appellation. The unique climate of this town enables a very special flor to grow year-round and create an especially delicate Sherry reminiscent of the ocean. Manzanilla sherry is a fino sherry that has been produced specifically in the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. 

Vinfication: The grapes are pressed and vinified in stainless steel before entering the bodega's solera (a system of fractional blending) for 4 years. 

Tasting Notes: A incredibly salty, fresh manzanilla, with notes of bruised yellow apples, salted raw almonds and delicate white flowers. Bright acidity, and perfect for pairing with nuts, olives and boquerones.
