La Cigarrera Description

Winemaker Notes: La Cigarrera has a prima location in the barrio bajo, the lower quarter of Sanlúcar. As a former almacenista their wines were previously sold to other houses including Lustau, but La Cigarrera started bottling their own Manzanilla in 1997.

Aged between four and five years in a solera system with eight scales.

Nose: quite a high intensity nose, full of brine, chalky notes and almonds. Typical chamomile. Freshness of citrus zest and light whiffs of herbs.

Mouth: smooth with decent complexity, still on salty notes, seaweed, peanuts and bitter almonds. Citric notes but overall the acidity is quite low. Soft fennel notes and green olives. Medium finish.

Wine Spectator: 91/100 Points

Very fresh, with a lively fleur de sel note that pierces the mix of quinine, chamomile, white peach and dried lemon peel flavors. The long, pure finish is bony and mouthwatering.
