The growing trend is to bottle and release “En Rama” is an exciting addition to our sherry range.
“En Rama” is to bottle the sherry (usually Fino or Manzanilla) virtually at the sane condition as found in cask. It has a very light filter to remove any suspended particles that may spoil the wine during transportation but no clarification or stabilization , all with the aim to provide a sherry in its most natural state as possible.
This year we are featuring the “En Rama’s ” from Bodegas Lustau one of the regions most prodigious producers and the only one to produce Fino and Manzanilla from the three cities that form the sherry triangle. This is the second edition of their ‘3 En Rama’ series and we have them all as follows:
MANZANILLA EN RAMA is matured on the coast in Sanlucar de Barrameda and bottled from a selection of just 2 casks out of 135. It is more intense in colour than most manzanillas. Intensely aromatic, flowery with notes of roasted nuts and creamy pastries and that classic saline edge.
FINO EN RAMA from Jerez is a stronger wine due to the nature of Jerez by being further inland. Again only 2 casks selected, this time from 708 barrels in the Bodegas Los Arcos. It is very pungent with nuts and flowery yeast cream.
FINO EN RAMA from Puerto de Santa Maria, is a more delicate yet beautiful structured wine. Also from 2 selected casks from 347. Rich and floral with roasted nuts and a saline edge.
