Estate Notes

Hidalgo, Manzanilla Pasada Pastrana NV is a pasada style Sherry (basically an aged manzanilla), where the flor (which protects against oxidation) has faded, resulting in a more mature manzanilla style.

Bodegas Hidalgo is a small family winery based in Sanlucar, which was established in 1792, currently run by Javier Hidalgo, the sixth generation of the family. Hidalgo specialises in single-solera and single-vineyard bottlings.

Hidalgo's most prominent brand is La Gitana, which is often added to the family surname to make sure it’s not confused with Emilio Hidalgo (Hidalgo is a common Andalucian surname).

Reviews

"The golden-colored NV Manzanilla Pasada Pastrana is a Manzanilla produced from Palomino grapes from the Pastrana vineyard within the pago Miraflores, aged under flor, but finishing its upbringing in a semi-oxidative way as the flor weakens, starts to die off, and bottled with a total average of 12 year of age. It has a distinct nose redolent of peanuts, smoke, bitter almonds, quince and olives, combining biological and oxidative notes. The palate shows a medium- to full-bodied wine, very powerful and strongly-flavored, ending with a smoky finish. A fine nose and a powerful palate. A unique wine." eRobertParker.com
