Lovely quinine, verbena, white peach and lemon peel notes mingle here, with a long, rippling finish that brings you back for more. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.

Review:
Compared to Finos, Manzanillas tend to be lighter and fresher. They age in an area with higher humidity, which allows the flor to grow thicker, preventing oxidation and retaining the wine’s bright aromas and flavors. Papirusa is one of the clearest examples of this style. Blended from five- to six-year-old wines, it’s light and soft, full of saline mineral flavors, notes of salted nuts and marzipan. It’s intense but never tiring, especially if you have albondigas de bacalao (cod fritters) to accompany it.
