TASTING NOTES

Legendary San León has acquired the complexity and depth of extended biological aging with the flor without sacrificing freshness. Permeated by the marine layer, San León’s intensely seawater nose and aftertaste mark it as the quintessential Barrio Bajo Manzanilla.

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."

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."

HEREDEROS DE ARGüESO WINERY INFO

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.
