Notes: Barbadillo’s Finos are more Manzanilla-like in style, but are aged in Bodegas with less exposure to the cooling sea breezes. The flor in the barrels grows vigorously in these cellars so the wine is a little more nutty & toasty than the more appley & yeasty Manzanillas of Sanlucar.  Straw yellow in colour with the classic fino aromas revealed on the nose; nuts, olives & the evocative suggestion of a patient ageing process. In the mouth it is crisp & exhibits a full body & perfect balance

 

Producer Info: The Barbadillo family are one of the key players in the Sherry trade. From their base in the coastal city of Sanlucar de Barrameda, at the very southwest tip of Spain, the family have forged a reputation as one of the biggest & best Sherry producers.

Never ones to rest on their laurels, the Barbadillo family continue to push the boundaries & set the trend in what is an increasingly challenging Sherry market. Barbadillo was founded by Don Beningo & Don Manuel Barbadillo in 1821. It was Don Beningo’s fortune, acquired through his business enterprises in Mexico, that allowed the family to purchase their first Bodega, the ‘Bodega del Toro’, near the ‘Castillo de San Diego’, in the heart of Sanlucar’s old high town. A vitally important location for maturing Sherry, the high town occupies the ridge of a hill overlooking the rest of Sanlucar, & the Atlantic Ocean. Its height gives unbeatable access to winds that blow in from the sea. This allows the Bodegas with their high ceilings & classic huge circular windows to regulate their temperature & capture moisture essential for propagating ‘flor’, a layer of yeast cells that float on the surface of the wine inside the casks. It is ‘flor’ that gives Manzanilla its character & instantly recognisable saline flavour.

Today’s seventh winemaking generation own 12 Bodegas, housing 30,000 Sherry butts, many of which are fed with wines sourced from Palomino Fina grapes grown at the family’s 500 hectare Gilbabin & San Luisa vineyards in the Jerez Superior.
These solid foundations have resulted in Barbadillo producing some of the world’s most famous Sherry brands.
