Bodegas Hidalgo Amontillado Seco Napoleón Sherry

In stock

Product Information

Amontillado Seco Napoleón is originally aged to become a Manzanilla using the traditional solera system in casks of American oak. However, certain casks show a deeper, nuttier character, and are transferred to a separate solera to age oxidatively, as part of the Amontillado blend. The name originates from the days of the Peninsula War, when the Hidalgo’s sold wine both to the French and the British! See also Jerez Cortado ‘Welllington’.

Tasting Notes

Hues of mahogany and rich hazelnut aromas. Full and long on the palate with subtle nuttiness and a dry and refined finish.

How to Serve

Excellent with nuts in particular and suits all pre-dinner nibbles better than any other. Lovely with grouse patê and hard cheeses. Do not over-chill in order to appreciate the more delicate flavours of this wine

Accolades

“Glorious amber colour with reddish tinges. A nose laden with vanilla, almonds, coconut and mocha. Pungent, punchy palate; firm grip, very intense. Powerfully salty but with an underlying fruit note to soften the briskness. Long and superbly complex; sherry at its unique best" Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter Magazine, August 2014
