Bodegas Hidalgo is the definitive Manzanilla house, established in 1792 and now thriving under the sixth generation of the founding family. It is one of the few family owned bodegas left. `La Gitana Manzanilla is one of Spains oldest wine brands and today one of the country's most popular. Its dry, fresh style is the perfect foil for the seafood tapas in the seaside town of Sanlucar de Barrameda.
Hidalgo have occupied the same bodega in the seaside town of Sanlucar de Barrameda since 1792. It is the closest to the sea, ensuring that the bodega is cooled by a breeze in the hot summer months, which helps preserve the freshness of hundreds of barrels of Manzanilla, protected from oxidation by a layer of yeast "flor". Hidalgo are unusual in the sherry region for owning many of their own vineyards to ensure that top quality Palomino Fino grapes are delivered from the chalky "albariza" soils.
The wine is produced from only free run juice. Fermentation is controlled in water-cooled stainless steel tanks, using the natural yeast on the grape. Fortification from 11.5% approx to 15% alc.vol then takes place using neutral grape alcohol. Wine is then matured for seven years in `solera or `fractional blending system in casks of American oak in the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda in Andalucia. Maturation is under a veil of yeast or `flor ensuring the light dry taste of La Gitana Manzanilla.
