Manzanilla Sherries stay in their
blending soleras for at least 3 years and often 5 or more, yet this
remarkable amount of care and costly maturation doesn’t translate
into higher prices. Unlike 'Grand Cru' Champagne for example,
world class Manzanillas are accessible even to those on a modest
income. Delagado Zuleta is the oldest family-run Bodega in Sanlúcar
de Barrameda, established in 1744. The La Goya brand was created in 1918 when famous Flamenco
dancer and Caple singer, Aurora Jauffre, allowed the winery to use her artistic name of 'La Goya' for
their best Manzanilla sherry.
Bright pale straw colour with water like hue overlaid with a delicate green
hue. The nose is quite pronounced with distinctive aroma of flor yeast, almonds and salt. The palate
has excellent weight and depth of flavours. Concentrated flor yeast, dry nut flavours. Salty palate.
Very strong aftertaste of salt and flor. A delight!
