EMILIO LUSTAU Manzanilla, Papirusa (Palomino Fino) Very Dry Bottle 15%abv
Please note: We only deliver in JERSEY, Channel Islands.
This is a bone dry Manzanilla from the town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda made from 100% Palomino Fino grapes. It is light and fresh, very tangy, clean and crisp with just a hint of saltiness. Serve it chilled as an apéritif.
ROBERT PARKER 92 Points 'Impressive is the superb non-vintage Manzanilla Parirusa. Its light straw color is accompanied by a spicy, nutty nose, elegant, dry flavours, delicious purity, and a smoky intensity. It would be fabulous with sushi. Drink it over the next year.'
The king on a Spanish board with no doubt be Jamon Iberico. The highest grade is known for a sweet, nutty acorn flavor, courtesy of “bellotas” from regional oak trees which gives the meat a very unique aroma. A more affordable version would be jamón serrano but it doesn’t have the same richness of flavour. The refreshing white wines of Spain (especially Albariño and Verdejo) as well as bold and firm reds from Ribera del Duero will complement the dark flavours of Iberico perfectly but the best pairing of all may be a dry Sherry or a crisp Manzanilla like this one. Cheers!
