Manzanilla URIUM

Aged under velo de flor

From gently-pressed Palomino Fino must totally fermented and biologically aged in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The special microclimatic conditions of the city situated next to the mouth of the River Guadalquivir are ideal for the development of a velo de flor with unique distinctive characteristics. An unusually prolonged ageing period, during which the flor weakens slightly permitting a little oxidation, results in this "Manzanilla Pasada".
