Founded in 1821, Barbadillo is the largest producer of Manzanilla in the whole of the Jerez region.

 

Barbadillo is currently run by the seventh generation of the family and owns 500 hectares of vineyards spread over two estates, Gibalbín and Santa Lucía, both of which are located in the Jerez Superior area.  The Gibalbín estate has an extensive winemaking plant fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Barbadillo’s seventeen wine cellars are strategically distributed over the best areas of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The cellars occupy a total area of more than 75.000 m² and have an overall capacity of 35 million litres (around 65.000 casks), the largest in Sanlúcar.

 

Manzanilla Solear is from a solera aged between six and seven years old. Intense and bright in appearance with a pale straw colour. The nose is intense and wonderfully fresh with a hint of saline that carries through to a palate that is very dry with a smooth elegance and great persistence.

 

A classic Manzanilla, pretty much the standard Manzanilla in the bars of Sanlúcar.

 

Serve well chilled.
