We have some riddles for you. “Voiceless it cries, wingless flutters; toothless it bites, mouthless mutters.” What is it? The wind. “It’s salty but pleasant, dry but refreshing, small but mighty.” What is it? Solear Manzanilla by Antonio Barbadillo of course! Yes, don’t be fooled by its size, there is a whole lotta dry, nutty, sea-salty goodness in this wee bottle. One to watch Almovodar films and pick at olives with.

Antonio Barbadillo is a long-established, family-run company found in Jerez Superior and possesses more than 500 hectares of vines. Within the winery are advanced winemaking facilities combined with ancient barrel halls storing vast amounts of maturing sherries. They are the largest producer of Manzanilla in Andalucia but their range covers all styles. Barbadillo’s Solear is an extremely dry style of Sherry, drier than Manzanilla and it packs quite a salty punch too. This marries with fresh, zesty flavours of crisp apple and finishes with a beautiful nutty palate.
