More information

 El Tresillo Amontillado by Emilio Hidalgo from the sherry cultivation area D.O. Jerez in Andalusia, is vinified exclusively from Palomino Fino grapes. 

A clear mahogany colour with glittering reflections shimmers in the glass of this sherry. The bouquet convinces with its multifaceted aroma - especially hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds are in the foreground and are accompanied by spicy notes. On the palate, this sherry presents itself balanced with a present, full-bodied and body-rich character. Even in the long finale, fine-nosed nuances still show up. 

Vinification of Emilio Hidalgo El Tresillo Amontillado


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. This young wine is then drawn off, sprayed on and placed in American oak barrels for the first ripening. The barrels are filled only to a certain extent (maximum 85%), so that the characteristic pile (a yeast layer) can develop, which seals the wine airtight and gives it the sherry-specific aroma.

After maturation, this wine is transferred to the traditional Solera system, in which sherries of the same type are aged in barrels arranged one above the other for three to ten years. 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
