Iconic Manzanilla named for the widow Aurora Ambrosse Lacave, pioneering female sherry
executive of the early 20th century. Yuste has skillfully integrated the 19th-C. solera with his own to
produce a complex, rounded and saline Manzanilla between 8 and 10 years of age, bottled with
minimal treatment to preserve an interplay of seaside freshness and full mid-palate.
Since 1991, Sanlúcar de Barrameda almacenista Francisco (Paco) Yuste has pursued the objective of
producing Manzanilla up to its highest historic standards. Upon rescue and restoration of venerable,
endangered soleras and bodegas in Sanlúcar’s emblematic Barrio Alto and Barrio Bajo districts,
classic Manzanillas and Sherries are produced. Yuste quality starts in the vineyard with the fabulous
46-hectare Viña La Alamedilla estate in the Jerez pago of Carrascal. Long term sources in El Puerto
de Santa María’s Balbaína and Sanlúcar’s Miraflores contribute in equal parts to combine freshness
and minerality with ample body. New wines arrive to Bodega Miraflores and remain unfiltered
during the entire aging process. Just 800 meters from the Guadalquivir estuary, Miraflores offers
ideal conditions for sobretablas selection and the first stages of Manzanilla development.
