Fortified Wine Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa
Availability: In stock
This Spanish fortified wine from Jerez is crafted from Palomino grapes and aged in American oak barrels with a “soleras” sediment rotation process. This wine has a unique character representative of the Sanlúcar de Barrameda region at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river. The humidity in this region greatly affects the grapes and gives this wine a special character.
We should enjoy this sweet wine over the next two years.
This wine Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa is especially good as an aperitif, with shell-fish, and all sea foods.
|Appearance||A brilliant and pale Straw-yellow.|
|Nose||Elegant floral and dry fruit aromas entwine with creamy notes that give this wine a saline character gained from its cultivation. Delicate and dry.|
|Palate||The palate starts with an attack on the palate that is dry and ample, with a delightful, long, and fresh passage that filled with dry fruits. Very well-balanced and with good acidity. A finish that is persistent but mild.|
|Our personal opinion||
Absolutely without a doubt this Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa is the best Manzaniilla wine. It is brilliant as an aperitif, and we love to enjoy this one by the sea.
