Grapes Pedro Ximenez

Triana is named after the iconic neighborhood of Seville where Flamenco was born.

Made using Pedro Ximenez grapes from Montilla Moriles (from the same source the Hidalgo family has worked with for over 50 years). The grapes are picked and dried on straw mats, before being selected further, fermented and fortified, then aged in solera for 12 years. Aromas of dry figs, raisins, toffee and nuts. The dense, thick palate is balanced by fine acidity. An unforgettable texture, with beautiful concentration and long, rich finish.  250-300 g/L RS. Ferments naturally to 9% ABV before being fortified to 15% alcohol.

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.
