Lea & Sandeman review
Manzanilla 'pasada' is an aged Manzanilla Fino, deeper in colour with more evolved 'sherried' flavour, yet with fresh acidity and flavour.

Rich and pungent, but with an underlying freshness. Like opening the window on an apartment by the sea that’s also next to a cheese shop. Brilliant, brilliant complex wine of superb depth and real food-friendliness. Gargantuan finish
A stunning wine that, at this price, really over-delivers. Lovely freshness, with delicate aromas and great complexity of flavour and nutty, creamy layers. This Sherry has more body and character than many other Manzanillas. Classy.
Darker than is usual for a Manzanilla, a colour which reflects the barrel ageing that this single vineyard wine has undergone. Likewise it has a little more character on the nose, and a hint of sumptuousness on the palate, than most Manzanilla. Roasted pistachio and woody vegetation aromas, with slightly chalky, flinty, minerally, roasted nut flavour on the palate. Very nicely texture from first entry, building in substance through the midpalate. Plenty of warmth
