'Olvidado' Manzanilla, Pago Macharnudo 2015


This fruit is from 'La Choza' vineyard inside Pago Macharchudo, and classified as a palma. The 'forgotten' barrel that is held back around 2 years from it's initual release. 

Deep gold with just a fringe of bronze. Salt caramel nose is brilliant with spicy dried Seville orange rind, and a great depth of real perfume, seductive rather than heady, really beautiful. Deeper and earthier again, pecans and rye toast, barley and lots of spicy cake-bakey goodness. Sweet and sour and really dynamic in the mouth, it's round and lifted, with barley water edged by chalk-starch and the whole thing open, vibrant and welcoming.
