Pale straw in color, this Manzanilla Pasada is delightfully aromatic, reminiscent of green apples, with the characteristic hint of a sea breeze. Dry, fresh and light, yet with substance and body and a refreshing acidity.

"This has a broad edge, with lightly browned butter, singed almond, dried orange peel and walnut notes mixed together. Ends with a taut, dry finish. Drink now. 200 cases imported."

"Although it is often associated with Amontillado, Manzanilla Pasada doesn’t lose its veil of flor. Instead, that veil becomes thinner over time, allowing a slight oxidation that transforms both the color and the flavor, as in this deliciously savory example from Lustau’s Almacenista line. It’s filled with sea-salt notes, sweet spices and candied fruit details. The finish is shockingly dry, even as the wine is juicy and easy to drink, ready for sea urchins scooped right from their shells."
