We’ve Struck Gold!

Bodegas Barbadillo
Solear en Rama
Saca de Verano 2018
Palomino 100%
D.O. Manzanilla, Andalucia, Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain

Yes, we’ve struck pure gold in a glass. Breathe in and I’m finding toasted almond, pecan, caramel candy. I smell pralines!  Rich apples are next and a touch of smoky salt. Swish and sip the pecans, caramels, and as stated before…pralines, but with a small burn! Mmmm. Again rich apples and some fresh cut grass.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: Does not pair well with Cheez-It’s. Let me repeat myself…IN NO CASE SHOULD YOU PAIR THIS WITH CHEEZ-IT’S!

Not going to lie, I love the label. I’ve found out that Bodegas Barbadillo, for each season, they bottle a small amount of their eight year unfiltered (En Rama) Manzanilla, they also depict one of the wildlife that can be found in the Coto de Doñana. The summer 2018 watercolor (by the artist, Mari Angeles Aris) is the Black-eared Wheatear. This lovely small bird hangs out in the national park from April to August when it continues the trek to Africa.
