Characteristics of Manzanilla Alegría

Manzanilla Alegría is a generoso wine produced by Bodegas Williams & Humbert in Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz) within D.O. Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

The history of the Bodegas Williams & Humbert wineries started almost 130 years ago. It was founded in 1877 by Sir. Alexander Williams and Arthur Humbert. They were involved in the creation of the Jerez-Xérès-Brandy Denomination of Origin, and to this day, the winery is recognised as one of the most prestigious producers in the world.

The Bodegas Williams & Humbert wineries are located in the triangle formed by Jérez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This triangle is characterised by a peculiar microclimate, made up of the rivers Guadalquivir and Guadalete, called ‘the Mesopotamian valley’ of western Andalusia.

Currently, Williams & Humbert is the largest winery in Europe, and its distributor, Sovisur, distributes all its products together with wines from other denominations such as Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda or Rías Baixas.

Manzanilla Alegría is a manzanilla wine made with Palomino from vineyards of the farm Pago Balbaína, planted on the typical ‘albariza’ soils.

After the manual harvest, with a grape selection in the vineyard, the light pressings are selected. Then, they will be decanted statically and ferment at 22ºC. With an early clearing of the lees and a classification by finesse, it is fortified up to 15% vol. alc. It is then when it moves on to the system of ‘criaderas’ and ‘soleras’ to carry out the typical dynamic ageing in the 6th ‘criadera’. Here, it goes through biological ageing under the yeast cap in the typical American oak barrels of 30 and 36 arrobas of capacity (1arroba is equivalent to 16.133 litres of wine), for a minimum of 6 years.

Tasting notes Manzanilla Alegría

Manzanilla Alegría is a dry, fresh and slightly saline wine. On the nose, it is intense and sharp, with aromas of dried fruits such as almonds that stand out. In the mouth, it is direct, mineral and long.
