More information

Emilio Hidalgo's Medium Dry is an amber semi-dry sherry made from Palomino (93%) and Pedro Ximénez (7%) grapes.

In the nose, this sherry pampers with an elegant bouquet of plums, almonds, walnuts and honey as well as some caramel. This wine flatters the palate with an elegant, mild taste of almonds and hazelnuts, which has a subtle residual sweetness. This is a complex and diverse sherry with a delicately spicy, long finish.

Vinification of Hidalgo Medium Dry The grapes harvested

by hand are destemmed, gently pressed and the must produced therefrom is fermented in a temperature-controlled manner in a stainless steel tank. The young wine is then drawn off, sprayed on and placed in American oak barrels for the first ripening. The barrels are filled only to a certain extent (maximum 85%), so that the characteristic pile (a yeast layer) can develop, which seals the wine airtight and gives it the sherry-specific aroma.

After maturation, the wine is transferred to the traditional Solera system, in which sherries of the same type are aged in barrels arranged one above the other. The oldest wines are stored in the lower barrels (Solera), while the youngest wines are stored in the upper rows (Criaderas). The sherry intended for sale is always removed from the lower barrels. In this case, however, only a small part (a maximum of one third) is removed and the removed part is then filled up by sherry from the upper rows. The whole principle continues to the uppermost barrels, where young wine, the Mosto, is added to the sherry. In the Solera, the amontillado loses its pile and the oxidative ripening process begins. During this phase, it develops its aromatic fullness and strong color.

Food recommendation for  the medium Dry Emilio Hidalgo

This semi-dry sherry is easy to enjoy chilled as an animating aperitif, but can also be combined with appetizers such as an artichoke omelette or mushrooms with chorizo in a versatile and enjoyable way
