This Week's Wine - No.4

La Gitana Manzanilla from Waitrose

La Gitana

LA GITANA MANZANILLA - Waitrose 15% abv £8.50

Those of us of a certain age may remember the slogan for a certain low alcohol beverage being “so light, so dry, so buy some!"
Waitrose are offering 75cl of La Gitana Manzanilla at a spankingly good £8.50 from £10 and I recommend that you do!

Manzanilla is a Fino Sherry that comes from the village of Sanlucar de Barrameda.  It has a fresh apple skin, salty aroma, clean as a whistle, dry and sappy.  At 15% abv, low for a sherry, don’t think of it as only an aperitif. Though it does that job admirably, try drinking it throughout the meal with some poached fish or chicken.
