Dating to 1821, Barbadillo is the reference house of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, where they own 500 hectares of their own vines, vinify all their own base wines, and age their sherries in a panoply of historic bodegas, most of them exposed to the fresh sea breezes wafting through the Barrio Alto.
An homage to Barbadillo’s first-ever manzanilla brand, ‘Divina Pastora’, dating the 1820s, the Pastora issues from a special solera housed in the Pastora bodega (itself fed by the Solear manzanilla solera.) It is bottled with minimal filtration in order to preserve the full range of its exceptional aromas and flavors.
Bright gold in color, with a pungent nose of yeast, nuts and chamomile. Complex and elegant on the palate with notes of saline and a long finish.
