ARE YOU UP FOR ONE OF SPAIN’S GREAT WINE TREASURES?
It’s Sherry, so be warmed.
It’s the bone dry variety that tastes a lot like green olives. Or a mouthful of sea water. Still interested?
Manzanilla is the winedrinker’s dry Martini. ‘Takes your breath away’. Not with high alcohol, but with the bracing feeling of an ocean breeze. The perfect aperitif, or partner for grilled shrimp. Stock-up for summer, and create your own south of Spain happy hour. Well chilled, in smallish wine glasses, or tumblers. Manzanilla is the living-by-the-ocean sister of Fino.
