Manzanilla En Rama 'Nave Trinidad'
Manzanilla En Rama 'Nave Trinidad', Bodegas Barbadillo
Barbadillo’s ‘Trinidad’ bodega is known internally for producing some of the company’s very best Manzanilla. In 2019, in honor of the 500th anniversary of the sailing of the Trinidad (one of Magellan’s five ships) from Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the solera system in the eponymous bodega was reconfigured to produce a very select Manzanilla exclusively unblended with wine from other facilities. By no means does this imply any extra ageing, in fact the opposite has happened here: Trinidad Manzanilla represents all the best qualities that a youthful Manzanilla possesses: Tanginess, zest, vibrancy and also a reminder of its fresh white wine origins, with the fruit of the grape still apparent before the flor turns it in to the typical salty, mineral Manzanilla we would usually expect. The label is a creation of local artist Marco Oliva whose father Manolo worked in the same bodega. Bottled ‘En Rama’ (unfiltered) to retain all the subtle qualities of this Manzanilla.
