Brand Lustau
Alcohol/vol 15%
Aged following a biological ageing, under a veil of yeast called "flor" in the cool, humid, salty air of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a fishing town on the estuary of the Guadalquivir river. Bright yellow colo-hr with golden reflections. This Manzanilla is laced with sea breeze scents and pleasant chamomile and flor aromas. Bone dry and light, fresh and crisp, with a hint of sea salt on the palate. Delicate and refreshingly acid with a lingering aftertaste. A perfect dry aperitif, but also great with Ibérico ham, salads, fresh seafood, ceviche, oysters, sishi or sushimi and fish dishes.

The NV Manzanilla Papirusa from Sanlucar de Barrameda has an intense straw color with a smoky nose of roasted nuts. The palate is dry and light, with clean, pungent flavors, showing finesse and good length. Lustau is doing a good job to improve their Manzanillas, working with a good almacenista in Sanlucar. Drink 2013-2014.

This has a lot of zing, with dried lemon peel and chamomile flower notes leading the way, while chalk and blanched almond accents race in behind them. The finish shows nice tension. Drink now.

Textbook Manzanilla! Papirusa is a clean, mildly salinic offering with green banana and toast aromas. The palate is just salty enough, but the wine's more about almond, apple and lemon peel than saline. And the feel and finish are nutty and warm. A full-bodied but refreshing style as only Lustau can do.
