Producer Bodegas Hidalgo - La Gitana


Style Sherry
Practices Organic
Grapes Palomino

Miraflores, the Grand Cru of Jerez Superior, to the southeast of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The chalk dune overlooks the Atlantic and offers perfect conditions for the ripening of the Palomino grape and the production of the region’s finest dry wines. Hidalgo’s ancestral Pastrana site, a monopole holding, is at the heart of Miraflores, just 1.5 miles from the Atlantic. It imparts great length and finesse to their wines, and a decision was taken a few years ago to market small quantities of the most exemplary Manzanilla from this superlative vineyard. This wine was the first single vineyard sherry on the market. Pasada is like a Reserva and aged 12 years, resulting in a wine that is both nutty and fresh. Rich gold color, complex with layers of gold and green at the rim. Classic saline nose and palate, but with an entirely new dimension of rich creaminess. 15% ABV.

About the Producer

Bodegas Hidalgo was founded in 1792 and is owned and operated by the 8th generation. It has held a preeminent position in Sanlúcar since the 19th Century. They are the third oldest sherry house and the oldest still owned by the founding family.

The house owns and manages 200 hectares of vines, all farmed organically. The albariza soil is rich in calcium carbonate and diatomaceous algae sediments, similar to the soils of Champagne. These soils are all about minerality. Under a microscope, the albariza soil resembles a sponge, retaining water for very long periods of time. Most of them are located in the Pagos of Miraflores (the renowned Sanlucar de Barrameda vineyard) and Balbaína (between the Atlantic and Jerez). Bodegas Hidalgo is proud to have the tallest Cathedral-style winery, fostering the best possible environment for the development of flor.

The flagship wine, Manzanilla ‘La Gitana’ (The Gypsy Woman) is named after a woman who owned a bar near the docks. The wines have received numerous awards, both nationally and internationally.
