Grapes are sourced exclusively from their own vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores, and only the free run juice is used for Oloroso 1986.
Matured in casks of American oak without blending in the sherry town of Sanlucar de Barrameda. No other years are added to the 1986 barrels. The maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows over twenty years of ageing in cask, to give a dry, complex wine.
Aroma: Intensely rich pervading walnut.
Taste: Dry, intense, rich and deep with a long and powerful flavour. Acidity lifts and gives freshness.
Serve at room temperature as an aperitif or dry after dinner drink.

Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence, with Javier Hidalgo, sixth generation of the Hidalgo family, now in charge of what is widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house.
The range of Manzanilla, premium and aged Sherries produced by the Bodega is considered a benchmark of quality and excellence the world over.
Using the best Palomino Fino grapes grown in the bright albariza soils of Sanlucar de Barrameda, Bodegas Hidalgo produces dry salty Sherries through biological ageing via the solera process under natural flor. They have also pioneered an aged, single vineyard 'Pasada Pastrana' Sherry and an 'En Rama' version of their La Gitana Manzanilla which is released twice a year according to the flor cycle.
