50Cl Palo Cortado Wellington Vos. Bodegas Hidalgo

Product Description

This is a Palo Cortado which is at least 20years old. It is an old Amontillado or Oloroso of spectacular quality which has been earmarked and put on one side to mature separately to the rest of the casks. It has a rich, toasty nose with a hint of saltiness. The palate is very powerful and full-bodied with an intense racy acidity and lovely freshness. The finish is extremely long and complex.

Such very old sherries, come from a solera system which is over two hundred years old, its age resulting in a thick sediment (known at Hidalgo as ?la Madre? - the mother) forming at the bottom of each barrel, which gives these rarities their sublime intensity and complexity. Only available in tiny quantities.

Founded in 1792 by Don Jos‚ Pantal‚on Hidalgo, this is one of the oldest sherry companies and today, is run by Javier Hidalgo from the original premises in the centre of Sanlucar de Barrameda, situated at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River. Vinicola Hidalgo is one of only a handful of bodegas that remains independent and totally family controlled and our initial tasting of their sherries was a real eye-opener. Theirs are real sherries made from old soleras and are the product of a ?artisan-craftsman? ethos, with all the grapes sourced from their own vineyards situated on ?albariza? soils in Balbaina and Miraflores, two of the very best Jerez DOC?s. Wine-making is very traditional and all the Hidalgo sherries are matured in American-oak ?botas?, something which is becoming rarer and rarer.
