The Charito Manzanilla from Emilio Hidalgo is a refreshing, dry sherry from the grape variety Polomino Fino (100%).
In the glass this wine shines in a bright straw yellow with glittering reflections. The nose is pleasantly fragrant with notes of yellow stone fruit and nuts. On the palate this sherry is light and elegant with a long finish.
Vinification of Emilio Hidalgo Charito Manzanilla
The hand-picked grapes are destemmed, gently pressed and the resulting must fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. This young wine is then drawn off, sprinkled and placed in American oak barrels for its first ageing. The barrels are only filled to a certain extent (maximum 85%) so that the characteristic pile (a layer of yeast) can develop, which closes the wine airtight and gives it its sherry-specific aroma.
Once the wine has matured, it is transferred to the traditional Solera system, in which the same type of sherry is aged for three to ten years in barrels arranged one above the other. In the lower barrels (Solera) the oldest wines are stored, while in the upper rows (Criaderas) the youngest wines are stored. The sherry intended for sale is always taken from the lower barrels. However, only a small portion (a maximum of one third) is removed and the portion removed is then filled with sherry from the upper rows. The whole principle is continued up to the top barrels, where the young wine, the must, is added to the sherry.
