Product Description

"Sherry country may not be your first port of call when it comes to selecting an Atlantic-influenced white wine. For a start it is heavily influenced by the Mediterranean and white table wines are pretty damn rare! Nonetheless, the Atlantic also plays a critical role here with those chilly Atlantic trade wines blowing though Sanlúcar de Barrameda not only having a beneficial, cooling influence on the region's chalky, sun-soaked Albariza vineyards -- they are also responsible (by moderating the activity of the flor) for defining the briny character of one of Sherry's most famous wines, Manzanilla. Navazos-Niepoort is a single-vintage white wine that is raised under flor. It's a white wine and not a sherry as it's NOT fortified. Following roughly the same rudimentary winemaking employed some 200 years ago, Palomino Fino musts (sourced from a stunning Albariza vineyard) are fermented in butt with indigenous yeasts. The wine is then aged for almost 10 months under a layer of flor that naturally takes control immediately after fermentation. It is then bottled as a white wine, without any added alcohol. Such wines were historically known as "vino de manzanilla" and were originally more highly regarded than the fortified wines of the area! This is a marvellous white wine of freshness and delicacy that is as both as captivating and quirky as it is delicious. Don't miss what is clearly the best vintage of the historic wine thus far released." - Importer's Note
