90 Points This rather full-bodied Manzanilla offers sunchoke, salted butter, yellow apple, dried lemon peel and Brazil nut notes all seamlessly layered and rippling through the lengthy, chalk-tinged finish.

90 Point The NV Manzanilla Papirusa from Sanlucar de Barrameda has an intense straw color with a smoky nose of roasted nuts. The palate is dry and light, with clean, pungent flavors, showing finesse and good length. Lustau is doing a good job to improve their Manzanillas, working with a good almacenista in Sanlucar.

90 Points Textbook Manzanilla! Papirusa is a clean, mildly salinic offering with green banana and toast aromas. The palate is just salty enough, but the wine's more about almond, apple and lemon peel than saline. And the feel and finish are nutty and warm. A full-bodied but refreshing style as only Lustau can do.

90 Points Restrained, not very obvious, shows its power in the palate, with complex yeasty-nutty aromas and a saline aftertaste. Delicious, appetising; a benchmark indeed

A bone dry Manzanilla from the town of Sanlucar de Barrameda, light and fresh, very tangy, clean and crisp with just a hint of saltiness.
