Description:
Denominacien de Origen: Brandy de Jerez, Sherry Brandy, comes exclusively from the Sherry District. The production and ageing of the Sherry Brandy follows the traditional methods of the region.

The brandy is obtained from grape distillate and then aged in butts of American oak for several years. The casks have previously been used in the ageing of Cream and Oloroso Sherries, which ensure that the brandy gains exceptional smoothness with ageing. The ageing system used is known as the Solera system,(fractional blending) which consists of a continuous mix of young brandies with older ones resulting in a brandy of consistent quality.

The base brandy that formed this particular 'solera' originated from the cellars of one of the members of the Hidalgo family where it had been kept under lock and key for two generations without being touched.

Tasting Notes: Flavour: Full, concentrated smooth.

Aroma: Complex rich woody aroma with nuances of walnuts.

Producer Information

The Hidalgo family originally came from the north of Spain but moved to the south in the eighteenth century, when King Carlos III was encouraging new people to settle in Andalucia. At first the Hidalgos owned estates in the area, and later 'salinas' for making salt. They then entered the wine trade in 1792 when Jose Pantaleon Hidalgo acquired a sherry business from his father-in-law, thus founding the firm that exists today.
Since then the company has been passed down from father to son and, six generations later remains completely independent and is still owned and run by the Hidalgo family. It is today one of only a handful of fully independent Sherry producers. The company continues to occupy its original premises in the centre of Sanlacar de Barrameda and has always been one of the most important bodegas in this town. It has long been respected for the quality of its wines. As far back as 1875 we were winning prizes in Vienna.
Today the emphasis is still on quality and to ensure this we use only the grapes from our own vineyards. These cover about 200 hectares of the best Albariza soil in Balbaina and Miraflores; areas of the Jerez Superior District that produce much sought after grapes. This is especially true for the lighter finer styles such as Manzanilla and Fino. We continue to use traditional methods and all our wines are matured in old casks of American oak, some of which predate the firm itself. Vinacola Hidalgo y Cia. S.A. also possesses the modern equipment and expertise necessary to meet the most exacting quality control standards and to offer the fastest and most efficient service possible.
We produce the whole range of Sherries: Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Medium, Cream, Pedro Ximenez etc. but our most important wine is Manzanilla.
Our reputation in the wine market today is as a top quality Sherry and Brandy producer. A continuous flow of favourable press mentions and prizes in international wine tastings, such as London's International Wine Challenge, support this reputation.
