Spring bottling of Barbadillo’s unfiltered (en Rama) Manzanilla. 100% Palomino, aged for about 9 years under flor (plus 3 in bottle when I drank it). Intense, complex nose with aromas of yeast, sea breeze, hints of spices. Saline, very tasty. Quite long finish with lingering hazelnuts notes — 9 months ago

P: Complex briny salt water. Tide pools,
Chewy but delicate. A powerhouse manzanilla from the west end of the bodega.

Apples on the nose, bone dry and very oxidised. Not sure I would buy this but it paired amazingly well with creamy fatty fish — a year ago
Excellent Manzanilla. Aged for about 9 years under flor and bottled unfiltered (en Rama). Intense nose. Yeast, some spices, curry (reminiscent of Vin Jaune). Saline — 8 months ago
The Pasadas are a particular favorite of mine. Funkier manzanilla, and with a heavy winter coat of flor, even more.
N:Salt water taffy, salt water, almonds, while flowers.
P: Bone dry, achingly so, not even a hint of wood, all seashore grass and pith. Hinting at fruit. All it’s own. — 10 months ago
