Terroir: Manzanilla can only come one from place in the world: Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The historical fishing port of Sanlúcar de Barrameda is situated within the northern province of Cádiz where the mouth of the Guadalquivir River empties into the Gulf of Cádiz and Atlantic Ocean on the southeastern coast of sunny Andalucía, Spain.
Vinification: This fresh Manzanilla is made from 100% Palomino bottled from 3 criaderas with an average of 5 years. To enhance its characteristic freshness, there are only 2 bottlings per year, which happen during the late spring and fall when the flor is at its peak growth. It is during this time that the wines are strongly protected.
Tasting Notes: Orleans Borbon Manzanilla is straw in color with tangy aromas of the sea rounded out by fruity lemon curd, almond skin, toasted bread and yeasty notes on the palate. Fine Manzanilla like this should be consumed like any fine white wine: shared with delicious food and better company. Served nicely chilled, Manzanilla is the perfect match for little bites of salty foods like fried anything, shellfish and oysters, cured meats, olives, almonds, cheese and even sushi. It is also quite appropriate as an afternoon beach beverage, at a picnic and while preparing dinner.
