Hijos de Rainera Perez Marin 'La Guita' Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda


750 ML


Product Description

This is a long time favorite Manzanilla amongst folks in Sherry country as well as throughout Andalucia. Once I was told how many thousands of bottles are sold and consumed during the Feria de Sevilla and could hardly believe it! This is a very fresh bottling, showing the deliciously bright, appley fruit which young Manzanilla should show. La Guita would make for a classic aperitif or accompaniment to your favorite pre-dinner snacks. Bottled 02/2013.


Varietal: Manzanilla

Region: Spain

Region Description:

This mountainous country possesses more vineyard land than any other country on earth, and ranks third in wine production after France and Italy. Spain is best known for its red Riojas and its Sherries, however other wines and regions are quickly gaining notoriety. Like France, Spain divides wine into categories; table wine at the bottom level and quality wine at the top, with a large emphasis on geographical origin. VdM (Vino de Mesa) is a basic table wine. VC (Vino Comarcal) wines are a level up. VdlT (Vino de la Tierra) refers to one of the country’s 25 distinct regions, and each wine possesses a local character. At the top level, only about fifty wines are considered DO (Denominacion de Origen). These wines come from the best-known regions and are the equivalent of France’s Appellation Contrôlée. DOC (Denominacion de Origen Calificada) is reserved for wines that adhere to the most stringent regulations. So far, Rioja is the only wine to gain the Calificada classification.
