About this Wine:

Bright yellow color with golden reflections. This Manzanilla is laced with sea breeze scents and pleasant chamomile and floral aromas. Bone dry and light, fresh and crisp, with a hint of sea salt on the palate. Delicate and refreshingly acid with a lingering aftertaste.

Aged in American oak casks in the traditional Solera and Criaderas system in the cool, humid, salty air of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a fishing town by estuary of the Guadalquivir river.

Serve between 7-9 ºC (44-48 ºF). Treat it as you would a white wine. Once opened, keep in the refrigerator and consume within a few days for optimum freshness. A perfect dry aperitif, but also great with fresh seafood, oysters and fish dishes.

Ratings / Reviews:

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This rather full-bodied Manzanilla offers sunchoke, salted butter, yellow apple, dried lemon peel and Brazil nut notes all seamlessly layered and rippling through the lengthy, chalk-tinged finish. Drink now." - JM (Aug 31, 2014)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV Manzanilla Papirusa from Sanlucar de Barrameda has an intense straw color with a smoky nose of roasted nuts. The palate is dry and light, with clean, pungent flavors, showing finesse and good length. Lustau is doing a good job to improve their Manzanillas, working with a good almacenista in Sanlucar. Drink 2013-2014." - Luis Gutierrez (Aug 2013)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Textbook Manzanilla! Papirusa is a clean, mildly salinic offering with green banana and toast aromas. The palate is just salty enough, but the wine's more about almond, apple and lemon peel than saline. And the feel and finish are nutty and warm. A full-bodied but refreshing style as only Lustau can do.” - Michael Schachner (6/1/2009)
