Located in Jerez de la Frontera, it has grown into one of the largest, if not the largest, producers of Manzanilla sherry. Today, Hidalgo La Gitana is one of the last remaining family businesses in the region, managed in the eighth generation. The family owned vineyards are farmed organically. Read More

Press Review

    Hidalgo Pastrana SV Amontillado 500ml 6pk

    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. An extreme Amontillado that dries your mouth. Cuts like a knife!
