93 points Wine & Spirits: "'[$22 list] Deliciosa grows at the Pago Miraflores in Sanlúcar de Barrameda and it’s typically aged for five years under flor. This lastest saca shows a lovely mix of almond flavors, salt and white fruit, all melding into the wine’s deep mineral notes. It’s substantial enough to serve in the company of blackened redfish. (Aug 2018)"

92 points Luis Gutierrez (Wine Advocate): "The NV Manzanilla Deliciosa en Rama Saca de Primavera 2013 has to be a new addition to the range, or at least I had never seen it before. It is nothing other than the unfiltered version of the Manzanilla Deliciosa, and is a great example of how much the filtering takes away from these wines. The volume market around the fairs in Andalucia demand clear, almost transparent, light wines. A wine like this En Rama bottling would be rejected there. It has a nice golden color, with herbaceous notes of green apples, yeast and bakery. The palate is sharp, light, with green almond and olive flavors, and a tasty finish. This is much better than the regular Deliciosa. Sold in half bottles and at a price that is a steal. Superb! Drink 2013-2015. (Aug 2013)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "[$20/375ml list] Peach pit and nectarine skin notes course along, pushed by sea salt, singed orange rind and walnut accents. Shows lots of tangy nerve through the finish. Very refreshing, with excellent cut. Drink now. 48 cases imported. (10/31/13)"
