This intense, aromatic, dry, mineral manzanilla is slightly more complex than her sister San León. It is not only the ensign sherry of this winery but also so typically representative of the fresh, salty Sanlúcar de Barrameda sherry style that it is often used at international sherry demonstrations and tasting schools. Reminiscence of chamomile along with notes of almonds and dough. From the 1822 original Argüeso winery solera –sherry traditional set of oak butts.
