Product Information

Produced using the traditional methods of the Denomination of Origin ‘Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda’. Vines are planted in Albariza soil in ‘Balbaina’ and ‘Miraflores’ in the Jerez Superior District. Produced from only free run juice and using only the natural yeast found on the grapes, fermentation is controlled tanks. The Wine is fortified to 15% ABV and is then matured in a ‘solera’ system, using American oak casks, under a veil of yeast or ‘flor’. It is only in Sanlúcar de Barrameda that flor can grow throughout the year, giving Manzanilla its unique light, dry style. Bottled under the original brand label ‘La Gitana’, one of Spain’s oldest wine brands. ‘En Rama’ signifies a Sherry that has been bottled almost directly from the barrel, without undergoing the usual processes to prepare a wine for bottling, such as filtering or fining. This makes the wine more intense and complex. The idea is to taste the Sherry almost as if you had visited the bodega in Spain and dipped your glass into the barrel.

Tasting Notes

A bracing expression of sherry with complex and aromatic savoury, nutty and salty characters on the nose leading to a fresh, tangy palate of hazelnuts, dried apple, citrus pith and a long finish.

How to Serve

A highly food compatible wine. Tapas, olives, grilled sardines and mild cheeses accompanied by nuts and dried fruits.
