Hidalgo Pasada Pastrana Manzanilla Sherry
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.
- Clean, delicate and faintly yeasty on the nose
- Dry, light, crisp but tremendously complex on the palate
- Classic notes of salted almonds and orange peel
- Power and refreshment combine to create the most complex and cerebral manzanilla
- Pasada Pastrana is deeper coloured
- Savoury, refreshing and hugely complex
Slightly chill Hidalgo Pasada Pastrana manzanilla sherry before serving. The ultimate tapas or light meal accompaniment.
Producing according to the traditional methods as stipulated by the controlling body of the Denomination of Origin ‘Manzanilla-Sanlucar de Barrameda’. The vines are from Albariza soil in the area ‘Balbaina’ and ‘Miraflores’ in the Jerez Superior District.
The wine comes from free run juice, controlling fermentation in water-cooled stainless steel tanks, using the natural yeast on the grape. Fortifying at 11.5% approx. to 15% ABV using grape alcohol.
Maturing takes place in ‘solera’ or ‘fractional blending’ system in casks of American oak in the coastal town of Sanlucar de Barrameda in Andalucia. The maturation is under a veil of yeast or ‘flor’ thereby ensuring a light dry taste. Only in Sanlucar de Barrameda can the flor grow on the wine 12 months of the year to give Manzanilla its unique style.
