Orleans Borbon Manzanilla Fina
Orleans Borbon Manzanilla Fina is a Sherry fit for a king. In fact, the winery that produces it is currently owned by the Spanish royal family and has only recently become available to those of us without blue blood. Manzanilla is a special style of Sherry that can only be made in the coastal region of Sanlucar de Barrameda since it's kept under a protective flor made of wild yeast native to this small corner of Spain. Like other Manzanilla Sherries, this one is dry, crisp, and incredibly light. It's made from a base of 100 percent Palomino wine, and has notes of almond, lemon curd, and even a hint of Spanish seaside. It has consistently received scores in the 90's and Wine & Spirits Magazine has even named it the Year's Best Buy Wine in 2013.
