Nose: indeed a round yet fresh nose with Bramley apple and plenty of dried kelp and flor. It shows a little more buttery notes, almonds and even vanilla roundness than you’d expect. I’m sure other bodegas would already call it a Manzanilla Pasada, but here it is younger than La Kika of course.
Mouth: refreshing start, with a bright juiciness of apples and citrus, but picking up strength rapidly. This leads to a full, slightly oily body, with warm mineral notes and some spiciness (fennel seeds). Dry, with autolytic yeasty notes, gentle green olives and moderate acidity. Some savoury notes towards the finish.
