Andalucía and its wines

Two suggestions for listing Sherries and Manzanilla wines from a frequent user in a time of change:

The vast majority of these wines are solera-produced and are therefore nonvintage; they should not be listed under a vintage date. A Saca (or bottling) can be listed with a date under Designation, since each bottling is liable to be somewhat different. Dates of accession to your cellar, if it seems important, can also be listed in Designation. <b> Only an Anada (Vintage) wine should bear a vintage date.</b>

Currently, Manzanilla wines (what used to be called Manzanilla Fino) need only be listed as coming from the wine region Manzanilla-Sanlucar de Barrameda. This assumes the 'Jerez' region, which need not be mentioned. For older wines, there may be some confusion about the origin and type. I would suggest following the label as much as possible. jht
