This is an en rama sherry, which means it has not been fined, filtered or cold stabilized. It is a wine with a unique identity and is probably the closest sensation to tasting straight from the barrel.
Viticulture: The vines in Pago Miraflores are bushed pruned. Pago Miraflores is located in Sanlucar de Barrameda very close to the Atlantic Ocean.
Vinification: The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks. It then undergoes 5 years of biological aging under a veil of flor. There are 6 criaderas + the Solera. The solera is the most famous Manzanilla solera called Misericordia with a very long and rich history.
Tasting Notes: The Deliciosa En Rama Sherry has intense saline aromas and notes of yeast, almonds and apple in the mouth. There is a crisp and mineral aftertaste. It is ideal with all kinds of seafood and fish, as an aperitif, and soups and creams. Served chilled.
