Origen Callejuela is the new name of the base range from this bodega. The Manzanilla comes from different pagos: 30% Macharnudo, 50% Añina and 20% Callejuela approximately, with different subtypes of albariza soils. The harvest is delayed as long as possible, resulting in a well-structured, full-bodied wine that can stand the undressing that happens during the biological ageing period. It is fermented in stainless steel and once fortified, the wine ages in butts with less headspace than usual, but the level inside the barrels is gradually lowered as the wine moves to subsequent criaderas.
The Manzanilla Origen Callejuela is made in a perfectly classical, methodical style. It is aged for 4-5 years and bottled four times a year. SHERRYNOTES.COM
