Product Information

Bodegas Hidalgo la Gitana was founded in 1792 and since then the company has passed from father to son. Today is one of the few wine companies owned and controlled by the family and run by the eight generation in direct line of the founder.

Amontillado Pastrana. It is a new, single-vineyard Amontillado from a plot within Miraflores in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Miraflores is one the most prestigious estate/vineyard of the Marco de Jerez district. Is considered a coastal vineyard due to close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, only 3 kilometers away, this contributes to an extraordinary salinity characteristic to the Amontillado Pastrana.Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence. Widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house. Continuity and quality have always been the most important themes for this family run company now in its eighth generation.

Tasting Notes

Light mahogany color, quite bright and clear. The nose combines iron rust with pungent, marine, sea breeze aromas. The palate is pure salt and iodine, a piece of sea in a bottle that is a little extreme and sharp, pungent and penetrating. It's a wine that started it's life as a Manzanilla, so it was a sharp wine to start with and was sharpened further by its aging in a winery some 400 meters from the sea. An extreme Amontillado that dries your mouth. Cuts like a knife!

How to Serve

suits most pre-dinner nibbles and an excellent match to pâtés and hard cheeses. Serve chilled but don't over-chill in order to appreciate the more delicate flavours.   

Accolades

“I was really surprised by the unexpected sharpness of an new wine from Hidalgo-La Gitana, the NV Amontillado Pastrana. It is a new, single-vineyard Amontillado from a plot within Miraflores in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. As with the Manzanilla Pasada from the same vineyard, this is a collaboration between Javier Hidalgo and Cristiano van Zeller from the Douro. This Amontillado is a wine averaging 30 years of age with a light mahogany color, quite bright and clear.The nose combines iron rust with pungent, marine, sea breeze aromas. The palate is pure salt and iodine, a piece of sea in a bottle that is a little extreme and sharp, pungent and penetrating. It's a wine that started its life as a Manzanilla, so it was a sharp wine to start with and was sharpened further by its aging in a winery some 400 meters from the sea.
