More information about Villapanés Oloroso Seco - Emilio Hidalgo

From the Spanish growing region D.O.. Jerez comes the Villapanés Oloroso Seco from Emilio Hidalgo - a sherry vinified exclusively from the Palomino Fino grape variety. This wine matures for almost 15 years in French oak. 

In the glass, it shows an appealing mahogany color with golden brown highlights. Despite the long barrel aging, the bouquet is still fresh and elegant with aromas of walnuts, hazelnuts and walnuts, underpinned by a fine spiciness. On the palate, this sherry convinces with its deep, persistent personality and a long-lasting finish. 

Vinification of the Emilio Hidalgo Villapanés Oloroso Seco

The hand-picked 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.

Food recommendation for the Villapané  Hidalgo Oloroso Seco

This sherry from Spain is a wonderful soloist when slightly chilled. But it is also a very good choice with strong stews (like grandma's) or with spicy hard cheeses.
