Hidalgo Manzanilla Pasada Pastrana
Wine of Spain. Manzanilla Pasada - White Spanish Wine. The wines selected originate from the Hidalgo family's 'Pastrana' vineyard situated in the Miraflores district near Sanlúcar de Barrameda, famous for providing some of the best grapes of the 'Jerez Superior District'. All the sherries have been aged in old casks of American oak for many years using the traditional 'solera' system within the Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana, S.A. in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the only place where Manzanilla can be made owing to its favourable climatic conditions. The final selection of the wines considered suitable for the 'Pastrana' label was very vigorous. As a result the choice finally narrowed down to just two sherry styles, one being a classic dry old amontillado, the 'Amontillado Viejo' and the other, this very fine Manzanilla Pasada, an aged Manzanilla with the typical freshness and delicate fragrance of this unique wine and with a style and quality that manages to suit the exacting standards of both wine makers. Cristiano van Zeller. In 1987, Javier Hidalgo of Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana, S.A. met with his old friend and fellow wine maker of the Oporto region, Cristiano van Feller. From this encounter sprung the idea of producing a special single vineyard sherry under their names. After ten years of carefully assessing the ageing and development of the different wines originally chosen and of the development of the various markets, it was in 1997 that the concept finally became reality.
