Bottled in El Puerto de Santa Maria by Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia, this Manzanilla sherry has a sharp and salty, almost tangy taste that pairs fantastically with classic tapas items including boquerones, Jamon Serrano and Manchego cheese.
Manzanilla is the lightest and most delicate of the sherries. Light and refreshing, it's best served chilled and is a perfect aperitif - although many like the taste of Manzanilla sherry so much that they prefer to enjoy it throughout a meal.
COMPOSITION: 100% Palomino grapes
ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
For nearly 200 years, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia has grown grapes for sherry in the city of El Puerto de Santa Maria. Located in the province of Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria's unique micro-climate is the perfect environment needed for aging sherry and developing the "flor" layer of yeast that gives sherry its unique taste and aroma.
Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia was founded in 1838 on the mouth of the Guadalete river. The climate and ocean winds here create an ideal environment for the aging of the Bodega's wines.
Traditionally they sold their sherry supply to larger sherry houses who would blend and bottle the wine. In 1997, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia, followed the lead of other small sherry suppliers and began to bottle the wine themselves in order to preserve the uniqueness of their vineyard's micro-climate.
