    Bright, Saline, Well-Structured & Full-Bodied Manzanilla Sherry

    A Manzanilla which offers citrus acidity and lovely notes of white flowers. Hints of stone fruits in the background. Moderate yeasty notes. On the palate is a little more herbal, even slightly peppery with a marked mineral footprint. Still a rather high acidity / sapidity with more white fruits, lemons, grapefruits, and some green apple. Bitter nuts and more Mediterranean herbs in the finish.

    • This Manzanilla spends 3 years in solera.
    • 100% Palomino

    BEHIND THE WINE

    José “Pepe” Blanco and his brother Francisco “Paco” Blanco started the Callejuela winery with their father and “dos botas viejas” in 1980 within the family home where their offices still remain. Nowadays they have in total of 28 hectares, between Jerez (Pago Macharnudo 4.5 hect vineyard Viña de la Choza & Pago Añina 8.5 hect vineyard Las Mercedes) and Sanlucar 16 hect (Pago Hornillo, vineyard La Callejuela). Main soil is the Albariza and main grape Palomino, they recently planted some Pedro Ximenez vines to produced their sweet PX.  

    Origen Callejuela is the new name of the base range from this bodega. The Manzanilla comes from different Pagos: 30% Macharnudo, 50% Añina and 20% Callejuela approximately, with different subtypes of albariza soils. The harvest is delayed as long as possible, resulting in a well-structured, full-bodied wine that can stand the undressing that happens during the biological ageing period. It is fermented in stainless steel and once fortified, the wine ages in butts with less headspace than usual, but the level inside the barrels is gradually lowered as the wine moves to subsequent criaderas.
