Tasting Notes Made from Palomino grapes, mainly from the Miraflores estate: one of Sanlúcar's most prestigious. Ageing and development is carried out in the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, here the flor in the solara grows more quickly in the humid conditions, developing the flavours of this Fino Sherry into the town's unique style. Pale straw-gold in colour, this Manzanilla has a delicate, fresh demeanour and a saline minerality on the finish.
About the Winemaker Joining Grupo Jose Estevez in 2007, the La Guita winery was founded by Domingo Perez Marin in 1852. Some say that the winery's name comes from the old Andalucian slang 'guita' meaning 'cash', as Domingo was well-known for preferring to be paid in cash-in-hand. But the more likely explanation is that 'guita' means 'string' and this is referenced by the small piece of string that adorns every bottle - an homage to the brand's humble beginnings. La Guita is located in Sanlucar de Barrameda and is the only Manzanilla produced exclusively from Pago (‘plot’) Miraflores, vineyards located around the town of Sanlucar where the Albariza soil provides great mineral character. La Guita Manzanilla was also the first of its kind to have its bottling date on the back label, something they believe to be vitally important for the consumer.
