Manzanilla is a dry, pale, straw hued fino wine produced within the D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry (Avg. ABV 15%- 18%), but exclusively made in D.O. Sanlúcar de Barremeda. Situated at the mouth of the river Guadalquivar, emptying out to the Atlantic Ocean, manzanillas age under a unique flor. Delicate, fresh and floral, with hints of chamomile, almonds and dough. Manzanillas that age for longer than two years in barrel become more oxidized due to a weakening of the flor. These wines are known as Manzanilla Pasada.
