The Villapanés Oloroso Seco by Emilio Hidalgo comes from the Spanish D.O. Jerez region - a sherry that is exclusively vinified from the Palomino Fino grape variety. This wine was aged in French oak for almost 15 years.
The glass shows an appealing mahogany colour with golden brown highlights. Despite the long barrel maturity, the bouquet is still fresh and elegant with aromas of walnuts, hazelnuts and walnuts, underpinned by a fine spice. On the palate, this sherry convinces with its profound, sustainable personality and a long-lasting reverberation.
Vinification of Emilio Hidalgo Villapanés Oloroso SecoThe
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.
Food recommendation for the Villapané Hidalgo Oloroso Seco
This sherry from Spain is a wonderful soloist, slightly chilled. But also with strong stews (as with grandma) or spicy hard cheeses a very good choice.
