Add to cart

Bright deepish amber with a hint of mahogany and copper tints, legs. Forthcoming fresh and fragrant with notes of hazelnuts, toasted bread, wax and oak with slightly bitter marine notes from its Manzanilla past. It is quite complex and beautifully integrated without losing its wild Sanlucar streak and is very attractive now though will naturally develop in bottle. Tangy dry and fresh, saline, hazelnut, walnut and a lean earthy very slightly rancio savoury note balanced by an attractive touch of  glycerine leaving a racy Sanlúcar style wine with a long clean finish with the lightest hint of caramel rounding it off at the end.

About the producer

Made by the Blanco brothers from vines they grow around their bodega just outside Sanlúcar, this wine, which is around 20 years old, has considerable charm. It has not been on the market long and is already hard to obtain but it shows how good the Callejuela wines are. Interestingly La Casilla is based on a parcel of old wine the Blancos bought from the stocks of Rumasa when it was expropriated and they have created this small solera feeding it with their own Amontillado. The reult is superb.
