Classic dried figs and walnut cake, surprising malty notes (breakfast cereals), caramelized sugars (think Crème brûlée) and light salted toffee. Hints of truffle, as well as some coastal notes. Honey glazed meat roast. Some vague salty notes and vibrant acidity, which gives it an energetic impression. Then back to nutty notes. Medium finish.
Emilio Hidalgo founded his bodega in the center of Jerez in 1874, where it is still managed by the fifth generation of the family. They have an impressive range of wines, with some of the original soleras containing wines over 100 years old which are offered in homeopathic quantities (like their superb Palo Cortado and PX ).
Fortified wine - sherry
