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.
