Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana Manzanilla & Palo Cortado In The Independent Online

Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana Manzanilla and Palo Cortado were both included in Terry Kirby’s feature on the best sherries to enjoy this Christmas for The Independent Online.

La Gitana Manzanilla was voted best manzanilla, with a rating of 9/10. Kirby commented, “If sherry is a unique wine, then manzanilla is a unique type of sherry. Manzanilla is a very dry style of fino that comes only from the coastal town of Sanlucar de Barrameda and derives its distinctive lemony, saline tang from the sea air that invades the barrels in which the grapes ferment under the layer of flor. Crisp and fresh, it is a brilliant aperitif and perfect with any fishy tapas.”

Hidalgo Palo Cortado was voted best palo cortado, with a score of 8/10, “Aged for a minimum of 20 years and from one of the best producers, a complex, full-bodied, nutty and dried fruit richness prevails here, undercut with a citrus freshness and a firm dry finish. Wonderfully distinctive.”
