Tasting Notes
Dry, fresh, crisp and delicate.
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.
Regional Information
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.

Vinification Details
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.

Not drinkable

Really very unpleasant and I love dry wines. Something definitely wrong with this batch, wouldn't even use as vinegar.

Not for trifles - a perfect aperitif

Ive tried quite a few different makers of this type of sherry and this my favourite so far, light and clean and great before dinner (or any other time really) Definitely not the sort of sherry your granny would have put in her trifle!

Id agree with other one star comments - revolting, like vinegar. No good even for cooking- maybe mine was oxidised too

My favourite dry sherry

Streets ahead of Waitrose Manzanilla Fina, and worth the slightly higher price. I'm intrigued to see how it compares with the M&S 'House' Manzanilla

My mum loves this

Been adding regularly to my order for my mum as she enjoys a glass in the evening. She thought it must be a mire pricey one and was very pleased at the actual price; even more so when it’s been on special offer.
