Note for the 2018 release: "My pulse quickens at this time of year when La Gitana’s En Rama is shipped over to the UK for its annual, limited-release run. My tipped bottle this week is the wild, revved-up, mesmerising version of the everyday glugger, La Gitana Manzanilla, itself a stunning, bone dry wine. Made from free-run juice and using only natural yeasts for fermentation, this is one of the most unique and otherworldly wines on the planet. You must track it down at all costs if you love dry sherry".
- Product Description
Manzanilla La Gitana En Rama, Hidalgo (2019)
Unfiltered, unfined, pure free run juice, direct from the barrel. La Gitana En Rama is made only from grapes grown in the highest quality vineyads: Balbaina and Miraflores. This makes the wine more intense and complex. The idea is to taste the Sherry almost as if you had visited the bodega in Spain and dipped your glass into the barrel.
La Gitana En Rama is only available when the flor permits and the tiny amount of this superb value wine quickly sells out to those in the know.
This years release is redolent with quince, poached pear, fresh ginger and a hint of sea spray. Generous and ripe on the palate. This is a much more luscious incarnation that previously. The palate delivers an abundance of peach, nectarine and apricot flavours. Racy acidity and poignant minerality enhance the feeling of focus. This is full of joie de vivre and remains an absolute bargain.

Perfect served chilled as an aperitif but also very well suited to pairing with fish, chicken or smoked meats.
