Hidalgo Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Pedro Ximenez

Hidalgo Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Pedro Ximenez 750ml   
Sku: 1028255*

Made from 100% Pedro Ximenez (PX) grapes that were sun-dried immediately after harvest to concentrate the sugar levels. Stored in barrels in a special open air porch just outside the bodega, the Hidalgo Pedro Ximenez is another example of a special, unique bottling that reflects the true terroir of its bodega. Sweet, but never cloying, this PX is classic and sophisticated.

Tasting notes
Aromas of maple, raisins and chocolate make this the ultimate after-dinner drink. Rich, sweet and mouth-filling yet true to the elegant, refined style that marks all Hidalgo wines.

Technical notes
Varietal Composition 100% Pedro Ximenez

Other text
Hidalgo has had the same cellar master, or capataz, for the past five decades, continuing the artisanal ways of the winery. An expert at managing the house”s various soleras, he employs a system of fractional blending, using smell and taste to monitor development and to create Hidalgo”s famously complex Sherries. In the great tradition of Jerez, Hidalgo”s winemaker is the capataz of the winery. Yet, he is more of a caretaker of the wine. Hidalgo wine develops in-barrel, while he oversees and guides this development. Historically, a capataz hones his skill rising through the ranks, learning what different types of wines ”should” smell and taste like, according to house style. Hidalgo”s current capataz is Manuel Nieves. Raised in Jerez, he learned much from his father, who also was a capataz. Manuel came to Hidalgo in 1959, and, as is the tradition, he learned the trade from his predecessor. He became Hidalgo”s capataz in 1972 and has continued to produce the same level of high-quality wine for which Hidalgo has been known. Upon his retirement, his son, Manuel Jesus Nieves, is slated to replace him. Since taking his licentiature in Chemistry in 2004 from the University of Cadiz, Manuel Jesus has worked full time as Hidalgo”s oenologist and apprentice winemaker. Prior to that he spent many summers working in the winery and picking grapes during harvest. New times require new methods, and Manuel Jesus brings a modern scientific touch to Hidalgo”s traditional method of wine production.
