Produced in a solera program with more scales than a typical Fino, this very pale and dry Manzanilla is aged around Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Closer to the sea and cooler than Jerez, Sanlúcar de Barrameda is more humid with more constant temperatures than inland bodegas, producing a thicker flor layer with less air contact than typical Fino. The result is a slightly lighter type of Fino with virtually no glycerol, combining saline notes with fresh liveliness. The aromatic profile is reminiscent of the coast: sea-spray and salt, and sometimes iodine. Manzanilla is a Spanish term for chamomile, because the sherry frequently presents as such to human olfactory receptors. Complex, round, saline-kissed Manzanilla 8-10 years old, bottled with minimal interference to preserve the interplay between seaside freshness and the full mid-palate.

Wine AdvocateThe entry level NV Manzanilla Aurora is supposed to be about five years old when bottled, but I must say that the wine feels quite young and fresh, and has a very light palate with a marked bitter note in the finish. They produced around 150,000 bottles per year.
