Hidalgo - En Rama ManzanillaComplex & Aromatic
En Rama signifies a Manzanilla that has been bottled almost directly from the barrel, without undergoing the usual processes to prepare a wine for bottling such as filtering and fining. The idea is to taste the Manzanilla almost as if you had visited the Bodega in Spain and dipped your glass into the barrel.
Bracing, complex and aromatic.
A savoury saltiness on the nose leads to a fresh, and tangy palate of hazelnut, dried apple and hints of meaty umami flavours.
Citrus pith on the finish gives this wine an overall freshness.
"Characterful, full bodied and round. A fine, fresh nose reminiscent of the solera ageing - toasty and ripe with dried fruits - and all the salinity of the Sanlucar marshlands. A good, balanced palate, soft, dry and smooth with an ample, long finish." 97/100 - La Guia Proensa, Spain.
"15% alcohol. Very bracing and aromatic with some salty, nutty savoury characters leading to a tangy palate with fresh, intense, nutty, savoury notes. There are complex flavours of hazelnut, citrus pith and a salty tanginess here. A really impressive, bracing expression of sherry that's highly food compatible." 9/100 Jamie Goode.
