Manzanilla La Goya
Flagship, one of the better-positioned Manzanillas worldwide. Impecable, versatile and always appealing. It got its name in 1918 when Mañanos Jauffré better known as “la Goya,” a famous copla singer and dancer of the era, leant her name to the wine.
This wine is biologically aged under layer of flor, using native yeast selected over the years. This Manzanilla is aged about 7 years by the traditional “Criaderas & Solera” system and is made of 100 percent Palomino variety grapes. It is aged in American oak casks restored over the course of the winery´s 100 plus year history. It is available in bottles of 37.5 and 75 cl and is 15% alcohol by volume.
Pale golden yellow in color, clean and glistening. The nose is fine and intense, presenting nuances typical of biological aging. Roasted almond, citrus peel and chamomile aromas are among the many highlights of this wine. It’s light, dry and very smooth on the palate. It displays outstanding persistence and unctuousness. This Manzanilla has certainly reached peak maturity, hence the name "Pasada".

A wine born to go with all kinds of seafood delicacies, especially shellfish and pescaito (fried fish). It is a perfect aperitif and the traditional accompaniment of typical Andalusian tapas.
