Manzanilla Goya XL
The top of the line, a formidable Manzanilla. A sip of our wines’ living history. Aged, extracted from the exclusive Solera reserved for La Goya, whose roots come from an old underground wine cellar beside Bajo de Guia, where the best pressings are sent for care and long-term aging, intended for the owners. An exclusive wine and not always available, as such, it is bottled only in exceptional circumstances.
This wine is biologically aged under layer of flor, 100% Palomino variety. Aged 10 years in the Spanish “Criaderas & Solera” system using American oak casks. It is available in 50 cl bottles and is 15% alcohol by volume.
Settled, long, lingering and matured Manzanilla representing the purest traditional sanluqueño style. Its intense gold color is clean and bright. A balance of sharp aromas of toasted cereal, citrus peel and balsam come through on the nose. On the palate it is dry, fresh, soft, creamy, very persistent, and flavorful with sea notes, a touch of olives, lactic notes and toasted nuts.
93 in Parker’s rating system. Medalla de Oro en la International Wine Challenge.
We recommend sampling our best Manzanilla with matching gastronomic pleasures. For example, Iberian ham, Sanlúcar prawns or crispy shrimp fritters. Although tasting it alone, perhaps with a handful of almonds, is how you can best enjoy all of its virtues.
