Characteristics of Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear en Rama Saca de Primavera
Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear en Rama Saca de Otoño is a fortified wine made by the Barbadillo Winery with the Palomino Fino variety in the D.O. Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in Cadiz, Spain.
Manzanilla is a wine made using biological aging. After the usual Palomino Fino base wine has been made, it is capped until it reaches an alcohol volume of 15% and then put through the criaderas and soleras system. This is a system of stacked barrels where, during the aging process, the wine passes from one level to another, with a layer of spontaneously generated white yeasts, known as the velo flor, which covers the wine and protects it from oxidation while providing organoleptic characteristics that give it a finesse and quality that differentiates it from a regular white wine.
In the Bodega Barbadillo la Manzanilla, it is aged for six years. Then the oldest and best barrels are selected to age for two more years, which is what becomes the Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear en Rama Saca de Otoño.
The Manzanilla Pasada en Rama name means that it has aged for longer than the usual Manzanilla (Pasada) and that it has been bottled without filtering or clarifying (en Rama).
In Sanlúcar de Barrameda the yeasts that make up the velo flor remain active throughout the year, unlike Sherry, where the yeast is usually active twice a year. “Saca de Otoño” refers to the moment when Bodega Barbadillo removes (saca) an amount of the fortified wine to be bottled, on a quarterly basis, coinciding with the beginning of each season of the year.
This process of production with the velo flor and the criaderas and soleras system is what differentiates Marco de Jerez wines and turns them into real jewels of the winemaking world.

Tasting notes Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear en Rama Saca de Primavera

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
Reaching the highest point is a great merit, but to continue to rise, getting new ideas and developing unexplored paths, is a miracle within the reach of a very few. This is how we can describe Barbadillo, one of the ten oldest family businesses in our country. It currently remains as the most dynamic winery in the Jerez setting. Here they investigate and create, but its old "soleras" also contain almost eternal relics that are an absolute challenge to the laws of longevity. Wines that are a compendium of power and aromatic complexity.
