Product Description

The name refers to the founder of the bodega Francisco Blanco, nickname Blanquito, Pepe and Paco’s father. Manzanilla Blanquito pasada is an old dry white sherry wine, aged in the solera system under the flor, for 12 years. The Palomino grapes come from 3 single states called, Callejuela (Sanlucar) Macharnudo and AƱina (Jerez). The system has 2 criaderas, (layers of barrels) and the solera (barrels on the bottom) is composed by 12 Butts. From these 12 Butts of this old solera, they bottle 300-400 bottles of 50cl, every 4 months. The base wine they use to refresh the 1st Criadera (sobretabla) is the manzanilla en rama 7 years old. This exceptional old manzanilla has very intense and concentrated aroma. It is floral, quite salty, great for food pairing, and floral with a long and pleasant dry finish.
