#41

Pear drops - just a hint.


#42

preserved lemon on the palate, love it


#43

That must be the ethanol. Have you been using nail varnish remover?


#44

I swear the palate reminds me of a white Viña Tondonia I once had.


#45

I’m getting herby focaccia with salt crystals on the palate - yes, I know it’s liquid, but that’s the taste sensation I’ve got.


#46

I would switch bakeries…


#47

The Apple follows through with citrus, salt and a yeastiness. Lovely freshness but so soft.


#48

We are tasting it with swordfish following the seafood rec onTWS site. Actually we invariably have fish on a Thursday so not difficult.

Goes well with our fish. Dry, salty, sugar free pear drops maybe? Hard to describe.


#49

Or maybe CVNE Clasico Monopole which is made in Fino casks with a little bit of fino inside …


#50

I always end up thinking ‘HOW can this be £x’ when I try a good sherry, but HOW can this be a mere £8.50 a bottle? The balance between weight and freshness is just lovely.


#51

Gorgeous, fresh and tangy. I feel I’ve been transported to the west cost of Ireland on a windy day and am getting sprayed by the sea waves. I love this Manzanilla


#52

I think this needs a hot day and the garden patio.


#53

OOH! This sounds gorgeous - how is it as a match?!


#54

Getting a Dingle tingle, eh??


#55

We like it and go for 7/10. Get the herby taste and also a slightly burnt aftertaste.


#56

Very good indeed! :yum:


#57

Manzanilla was my introduction to sherry, this is up there with the best I have tasted,


#58

All that’s missing is Fungie…:grin:


#59

This and Ewan’s foccacia comment are my fave tasting notes so far - and spot on from what I’m tasting! :smiley: :clap:


#60

What would you serve this with? All I can think is ‘tapas’ and that’s not very imaginative…
