Notes: This Manzanilla has been aged for 8 years before bottling, making it a ‘Pasada’ style. The extra ageing on a ‘pasada’ builds complexity, body & adds a hint of oxidation as the veil of ‘flor’ begins to thin. It is also an ‘En Rama’ or ‘raw’ manzanilla meaning the wine has been bottled straight from the cask with no fining or filtration to preserve the body & freshness. The ‘Pastora’, or ‘shepherdess’, was the first Manzanilla brand launched by Barbadillo in 1827. The brand was resurrected in 2014 to launch this wine – Barbadillo’s finest Manzanilla.

Pastora is a true ‘Pasada’ with its golden hue, pungent yeast, nut & chamomile flavour & is remarkably smooth. Serve slightly chilled with all things salty!

 

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.
