From The Importer

Established in 1719, Delgado Zuleta is the oldest family-owned Sherry house and has its cellars and vineyards situated around the town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Delgado Zuleta has become specialist in producing Manzanilla and their market leading wine is a Manzanilla labelled as 'La Goya' which is named after the famed flamenco dancer from the region. This brand first appeared in 1918.

Over the past 25 years, they have moved bodegas from down in the town to the breeze-swept hilltop above Sanlúcar, into a new purpose-built bodega. They took 20 years to ensure this humid, clay-soiled bodega has exactly the right conditions for flor before finally moving in the La Goya solera. Butts in the solera average more than 100 years' age, and require repair every 30 years or so.

"La Goya" is a Manzanilla pasada, meaning it has been aged for a relatively long time (8 years, compared to Manzanilla standard of about 4 and a half). The wine is bottled, however, before the flor yeast can die off, thus avoiding any Amontillado characters. The oyster shell suggestion in normal Manzanilla becomes a richer scent of abalone, and the wine has a fabulous builders' lime streak which directly reflects the flavour of the chalky 'albariza' soils in which it's grown.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"As we head towards the end of the year, it’s time to reprise a summer classic, a bone-dry Sherry. The La Goya is a long-time favourite – that it comes in half bottles, is sealed with a screwcap and includes its bottling date, is a triple bonus. Its shimmering colour and subtle aromas of sea spray, oyster shell and fresh finger lime set the scene. The flavours are fine and long with a gentle phenolic grip offering a farewell salute." - Peter Bourne (Gourmet Traveller WINE - Best Buys Dec/Jan 2019)
