  • Riá Pitá is an onomatopoeia, a reproduction of the sound made by castanets as they rattle in flamenco music. Bodegas Dios Baco named their Manzanilla after this peculiar word – the label depicts a woman playing the castanets.
    Nose: nicely in the middle of the normal Manzanilla style and an older, richer Manzanilla Pasada. It’s fresh with a moderate yeastiness but there are subtle hints of autolysis as well (whiffs of horse stables). Lots of chamomile. Salted almonds. Some sea spray, soft Mediterranean herbs and plenty of green olives. Apples as well.

    Mouth: full-bodied. More apples, lemon / lime, it feels slightly younger than it did on the nose. Some nutty notes – that’s the Manzanilla Pasada style again – with a subdued acidity but a higher than average bitterness I would say. Medium flor notes. Briny notes set in towards the finish. The notes of olive juice return, joined by citrus zest.
