The Gobernador Oloroso from Emilio Hidalgo is a varietal sherry aged over many years from the Spanish wine region D.O.. Jerez.
A radiant mahogany color shines in the glass. This noble sherry convinces the nose as well as the palate with its strong nutty aromas - walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds present themselves. On the palate, this Spanish wine convinces with its full-bodied and dry character and a long-lasting finish.
Vinification of the Hidalgo Gobernador Oloroso
The hand-picked grapes are destemmed, gently pressed and the resulting must is fermented in stainless steel tanks under temperature control. The 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 transferred to the traditional solera system, in which sherries of the same type are aged 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. In the solera, the amontillado loses its flor and the oxidative aging process begins. During this phase it develops its aromatic richness and the strong color.
