Great recommendation by James Halliday himself:
I’ve been drinking this wine frequently, as I knew I would when I gave up the struggle and bought it. Spanish Manzanilla, screwcapped and rushed to Australia within weeks of being bottled, is utterly addictive. It’s bone dry, tangy and perfectly balanced; all the descriptors relate to its inimitable texture and structure.
Baskets of fruit are not what this wine is about: indeed, its very neutrality is its greatest strength, for it will match any food of any description you care to throw against it. Then again, it is equally at home as an aperitif, which is where I start each night. It comes in 375 ml bottles, and must be served chilled, kept in the fridge once opened, and the remaining wine consumed within days. Given its alcohol level of only 15% alc/vol, this is not an imperative that presents any problem for me. Its price of around $24 (375 ml) means the addiction comes cheap.
