Bodegas La Cigarrera is located in the heart of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This almacenista began operations in 1758, and cellar master Ignacio Hidalgo began bottling his own Manzanilla in 1997. Ignacio is a ninth-generation cellar master, whose family's wines were previously sold to famous Sherry houses, including Lustau, for bottling.
La Cigarrera refers to the cigarette/tobacco women who used to sell on the sidewalks of Sanlúcar. It is a tribute to the pride, beauty, and history of this town. La Cigarrera Manzanilla is aged four years on the lees before being bottled. Vibrant and fresh with aromas of yeasts and salinity. The wine on the palate is rich and substantial with a long finish. La Cigarrera Manzanilla should be served cold. (from the importer)
