OVERVIEW

Founded in 1822, Herederos de Argüeso is uniquely identified with its legendary Manzanilla, San León. San León conveys the complexity and depth of extended biological aging with the flor without sacrificing freshness. Permeated by the marine layer that envelopes the historic seaside facilities, San León’s intensely seawater nose and aftertaste mark it as the quintessential Barrio Bajo Manzanilla.

HISTORY

Historic firm founded in 1822 by Don León de Argüeso y Argüeso and bestowed upon his passing to nephew Juan and niece Francisca (“los Herederos”). Original soleras were acquired with 250-year-old Bodega San Carlos on Calle Santo Domingo in Sanlúcar’s Barrio Bajo district.

PRESS

San León Manzanilla - "The super fresh and fairly intense maritime aromas are not surprising as the bodega is among the closest to the estuary. They are strongly saline with very pungent flor, bitter almond and dry scrub along with faint notes of seaweed and esparto in the background. Cracking nose.

Intense and full of character, it is a big Manzanilla with considerable concentration and yet there are only faint notes of cabezuela; the bitter yeastiness is mostly – but not all - from the wine’s surface, and there is no shortage of that. It epitomises the Spanish word “punzante” (sharp) but in a wine context, meaning up-front, crisp, incisive, pungent. In the very long finish there are briny notes of sourdough and cabezuela and a dry chalky texture. It is amazigly complex for wine which is not yet really a Manzanilla pasada - though it is getting close."


Paula MacLean, Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Blog, Sep 15, 2018

San León Manzanilla - "Light and fresh, with white peach, lemon peel and honeysuckle notes woven together, carried by mouthwatering acidity through a lean, dry finish that is nonetheless charming. Drink now."
