Bodegas Barrero Gabriela Manzanilla 37.5cl
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Named for a 19th century flamenco dancer, Gabriela Ortega Feria, this solera was one of the treasures saved from the venerable bodegas of Sanchez Ayala when they were bought by Barrero and the production has remained resolutely traditional. Entirely produced from their own vines in the famous chalk soils of the Pago de Balbaina this is one of the few remaining single vineyard sherries and has a singular character.
WINEMAKING: Gabriela is the flagship wine from Bodegas Barrero in Sanlucar made form the single vineyard 'Las Canas' of Palomino grapes. After fermentation with native yeasts, it is aged in barrel under flor for 5-6 years before bottling.
TASTING NOTES: A very elegant, silky Sherry wine. Fresh herbal notes, almonds and walnuts and subtle, mineral salinity. Hints of lovage and chamomile. Quite a long finish with a soft bitterness of Mediterranean herbs.
