Buelan Compañia de Sacas is a bottling project of barrel-selected sherries created by Nick Africano, musician and founder of En Rama Sherry Co.
Las Canciones No. 1 'Mirador' Manzanilla is a single barrel bottling, Bota #18, of manzanilla selected with the help of Willy Perez and Ramiro Ibañez of M. Ant. De La Riva. A saca of 500 bottles from almacenista, Bodegas del Río, in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, led by 3rd generation capatáz, Luís del Río.
It is a young, lively manzanilla with an average of 3yrs in solera with intense notes of citrus, sea shells, and salt. Literally a stone’s throw from the sandy, brackish delta of the Guadalquivir River...a short drive north past the very end of the Bajo de Guía, it truly captures the terroir of Barrio Bajo in Sanlúcar. The barrel was selected from a row of barrels along the warmer wall of the bodega, and a warmer side of the room, leading to a fresher, more playful expression.
