The Pedro Ximénez Vino Dulce Natural by Emilio Hidalgo is a precious sweet sherry and presented in the glass in a dark mahogany with golden highlights.
The expressive bouquet is carried by fruity aromas of dried fruits (apricots) and floral notes. On the palate, this sherry is wonderfully concentrated and intense aromas of raisins reveal themselves. The oily texture promises a fascinating drinking experience even when drunk pure.
Vinification of Emilio Hidalgo Pedro XiménezThe
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 ripening.
After maturation without yeast flour, 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. Oloroso, produced under oxidative influence, is then married to a naturally sweet wine.
