The La Panesa Especial Fino by Emilio Hidalgo from the Andalucian sherry-growing region D.O.. Jerez is vinified exclusively from Palomino Fino.
A brilliant golden yellow with golden highlights shines in the glass of this wine. Intense aromas of fresh nuts, Mediterranean spices and subtle mineral hints unfold on the nose. The palate enjoys a full-bodied and lively character. The finish awaits with a persistent length and elegance.
Vinification of the Emilio Hidalgo La Panesa Especial Fino
The hand-harvested grapes are destemmed, gently pressed and the resulting must is fermented in stainless steel tanks under temperature control. This young wine is then drawn off, fortified and placed in American oak barrels for initial aging. The barrels are only filled to a certain extent (maximum 85%), so that the characteristic flor (a layer of yeast) can develop, which seals the wine airtight and gives it the sherry-specific aroma.
Once the wine has matured, it is sent to the traditional solera system, in which sherries of the same type are aged for three to ten years in barrels placed 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 taken from the lower barrels. However, only a small part (maximum one third) is taken and the removed part is then filled up with sherry from the upper rows. The whole principle is continued until the topmost barrels, where young wine, mosto, is added to the sherry.
