Hidalgo Fino Spain NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Manzanilla La Gitana is produced according to the traditional methods as stipulated by the controlling body of the Denomination of Origin ‘Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda’. The vines are planted in Albariza soil in the area ‘Balbaina’ and ‘Miraflores’ in the Jerez Superior District (200 Ha approx). Pastrana is a single vineyard, on the crest of a hill near the sea, therefore cooled by the sea breezes. These grapes have great intensity of flavour. The wines are aged for longer in American oak casks than La Gitana. Manzanilla La Pastrana is deeper coloured as a result, and is savoury, refreshing and very, very complex. The aromas of this wine are clean, delicate and faintly yeasty. The taste is dry, light and crisp but tremendously complex. It has power and refreshment combined - a rare thing in wine. Best serve slightly chilled, it is the ultimate tapas or light meal accompaniment. The most complex and cerebral manzanilla.
