Manzanilla Gabriella, Bodegas Barrero 15% (375ml) £12

Gabriela is the flagship wine from Bodegas Barrero in Sanlucar made form the single vineyard ‘Las Canas’ of Palomino grapes. After fermentation with native yeasts, it is aged in barrel under flor for 5-6 years before bottling. 

Named for a 19th century flamenco dancer, Gabriela Ortega Feria, this solera was one of the treasures saved from the venerable bodegas of Sanchez Ayala when they were bought by Barrero and the production has remained resolutely traditional. Entirely produced from their own vines in the famous chalk soils of the Pago de Balbaina this is one of the few remaining single vineyard sherries and has a singular character. The attack is broad, mellow and fruity with a gentle note of apricot giving onto soft herbs and sourdough and a saline finish.

Intensely saline with plenty of flor character and aromas of white flowers, walnuts, preserved citrus and a long, lightly bitter dried herb finish.

A very elegant, silky Sherry wine. Fresh herbal notes, almonds and walnuts and subtle, mineral salinity. Hints of lovage and chamomile. Quite a long finish with a soft bitterness of Mediterranean herbs.
