      Winemaker Notes

      #77 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016

      Intensely rich pervading walnut aromas. The palate is dry, intense, rich and deepwith a long and powerful flavor.

      Oloroso solera of extreme age, bottled in its natural state. Intense and silky on the palate yet completely dry. As all Hidalgo sherries, displays elegance and balance, and inimitable savor, from the low-pH fruit obtained in Hidalgo's seaside vineyard estates.

      Wine Spectator
      Intense, with roasted almond, Brazil nut and walnut notes lending this a slightly burly aspect, while gunpowder tea, bitter orange and almond accents add a taut feel through the finish. This is a distinctive, edgy version that Sherry geeks will dig.
      RP 91
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      Aromatic with aromas of hazelnuts, walnuts, and raisins and a broad, dry flavor profile.

      Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

      Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in many styles from dry to sweet. True Sherry can only be made in Andalucía, Spain where the soil and unique seasonal changes give a particular character to its wines. The process of production—not really the grape—determine the type, though certain types are reserved for certain grapes. Palomino is responsible for most dry styles; Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria are used for blending or for sweet styles.
