Manzanilla, Pago Añina 2017


This is from the fruit of 'Las Mercedes' vineyard inside Pago A̱ñina. Almost a natural Palo Cortado in style, bottled at 16%. Intensely mineral, after 4 years unmixed, unmoved under flor.

This is a deep, slightly oxidative bronze to look at. Smells like tisane of fermented straw, with toasted cereal, powdered ginger and baking smells of yeast, almond meal, and sponge spiced with mace. It's rounded and oloroso-like in style - mineral, soft, yeasty with lushness, finishing gentle and easy.
