Bodegas La Cigarrera releases Manzanilla Pasada

Spanish family-owned Bodegas La Cigarrera has released its Manzanilla Pasada into the international market.

The product, which has been biological ageing for 12 years in American oak barrels, is 15% ABV and created from the Palomino grape.

Manzanilla is a fortified wine, similar to fino sherry, that can only be made in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Its production relies on the local climate and the influence of other important factors such as the “Poniente wind”, the influence of the sea, mists and humidity. The company also has a number of other Manzanilla products available, as well as a Muscatel.

The rare Pasada is from only 9 barrels, located in the bodega’s Sarnilla and Cabral warehouses.

Flavour and colour profile from the bodega say the drink has salty notes with almonds, an old gold colour, and it is ideal to pair with fish or shellfish.

It is available direct in either 37, 50 or 75cl bottles with shipping within Spain, as well as distributors in the UK, Germany, Japan and the USA.
