Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Colosia Manzanilla is a Manzanilla produced under the D.O Jerez by Bodegas Gutiérrez Colosia, situated in the Puerto de Santa Maria, Cadiz.

The winery was founded back in 1838 and is situated at the mouth of the River Guadalete, on the Bay of Cadiz. The location of the winery is perfect for the production of wines, with the dry Levant wind and the humidity of the Atlantic offer an ideal self-regulation of humidity.

In order to produce this Manzanilla, the wine must be moved to a winery in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, since this is the only town where you are able to produce under the name Manzanilla. This vinification process is similar to that of a fino, made also exclusively with the Palomino Fino variety, but the character is slightly different due to the special environmental conditions of Sanlúcar, with a greater degree of humidity.

Pictures and situation Colosia
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.
