|Manzanilla Pasada ‘Pastrana’ NV|
|To the southeast of Sanlúcar lies a chalk dune overlooking the Atlantic which offers the perfect conditions for ripening the Palomino grape and for production of the region's finest dry wines. This is Miraflores, the Grand Cru of Jerez Superior. Hidalgo's ancestral Pastrana site, a monopole holding, is at the heart of Miraflores. Pastrana contributes the length and finesse, perhaps even the soul, in all of Hidalgo's magnificent wines, and a decision was taken some years back to market small quantities of the most exemplary Manzanilla from this superlative vineyard on its own.|
