San Leon Manzanilla Clásica (375ml)

Sherry, Manzanilla from Spain

Past wine – out of stock. See here instead



Manzanilla is inseparably linked to Sanlucar de Barrameda, the coastal town sitting at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River. Because the more humid environment in the bodegas here encourages a thicker flor layer, these wines are typically lighter and even fresher than fino, often with a distinctive salty tang.

A very bright, pale straw coloured wine. A sharp, delicate bouquet with predominant floral aromas reminiscent of camomile, almonds and dough. Dry, fresh and delicate on the palate, light and smooth in spite of a dry finish. Light acidity produces a pleasant sensation of freshness and a lingering, slightly bitter aftertaste.

Manzanilla sherry must be served chilled, at between 7 and 9ºC.

San Leon is made by Bodega Argueso, which was founded in 1822 by Don Leon de Argüeso and the company still operates from the original bodegas, which are now over 250 years old. Jancis Robinson: "The best producer in Sanlucar..."

This sherry spends more than 5 years in the criaderas and soleras system. It is made from Palomino grapes and has 15° alcohol which is typical.
