HIDALGO - Amontillado MediumSherry
Amontillado Hidalgo is produced according to the traditional methods as stipulated by the controlling body of the Denomination of Origin 'Jerez-Xeres-Sherry'.
Fino, or in this case Manzanilla sherry is aged until the protective covering of flor yeast dies back as a result of consuming all the nutrients in the wine.
Amontillado is therefore a combination of flor (biological) ageing with oxidative ageing to follow. Aged in a fractional blending solera system to ensure consistency, this wine is lightly sweetened prior to bottling.
Taste: Rich warm flavour, slightly sweet. Smooth.
Aroma: Full nutty.
Serve at room temperature as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to desserts.
