The saltiest Sherry and the best companion of Hairy Crab
La Guita is a 100% Sanluqueña (from Sanlucar) manzanilla, starting with the grape used for its preparation, its ageing and maturing, right through to the bottling process. Find out about the ageing process using Criaderas and Soleras and discover the magic of the biological ageing under a velum of flor yeast.
Ever heard of the saline style of wine? Sherry, Southern Spain's Famous Fortified Wine, is the one! The way the winemaker does credits the sea breeze with imparting the salty tang noticeable in most Manzanillas. Thus, this salty flavour is believed to develop from its being manufactured on the sea estuary of the Guadalquivir river. Work really well with fresh seafood, so why not give it a go this crab season?
Tasting Note: Medium body, very dry and slightly tangy with hints of chalk and salt. Lime. Light breadcrust and minerals, as well as subtle nutty flavours. Medium long finish, still full and nicely balanced.
