'La Kika' Manzanilla Pasada en Rama Sherry NV, Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain
Fortified wine, 37.5cl. Full bodied 100% Palomino from Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain. 15.0% ABV. Vegan
Very intense flor notes, with rich hints of hay, flax, toasted almonds and hazelnuts. Just a hint of baked apple in the background. Herbal infusion and buttery notes. There’s flor and brine, bitter almonds and just a hint of citrus acidity. Light yeasty notes. Dried flowers. Light iodine. Very long and amazingly fresh finish.
Tasting notes from Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast
"Wood resin, green melon and a slight whiff of gasoline comprise the nose on this fresh refined Manzanilla. Spiced apple, sea salt and sautéed white mushroom flavours are lasting on a healthy semi-complex finish." 90/100 Points
Producer Profile Bodegas Yuste
Bodegas Yuste is a family-owned collection of several small wineries located in the historic city of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The company was founded in 1991 by Francisco “Paco” Yuste, the owner of a successful drinks distributorship, when he purchased the historic Bodega Santa Ana and its centenarian solera. This bodega used to belong to the Rainera Pérez Marín family and is now the residence of the Yuste family. Dedicated to the founder’s late mother Caridad (‘Kika’), this Manzanilla Pasada ‘La Kika’ from Bodegas Yuste is a relatively new product on the market. It used to be bottled only for the family and close friends.
