Pea Quick Bread with Peas & Chamomile

Pair with Manzanilla

Manzanilla is a perfect match with Pea Quick Bread with Chamomile. Try Callejuela, a young manzanilla and a classic expression of Sanlúcar... citrus, grass, almondy yeast, and mouth-puckeringly dry. The leanness of the manzanilla pairs perfectly with the green, unctuous notes of the peas and cuts through its creaminess, while the added chamomile reminds us of the wine's true essence of white flowers and sea air.
