Review

Located in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, where it is considered quite an institution, Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana is currently run by the fifth generation of the Hidalgo family and possesses more than 200 hectares of vineyards on the Balbaina and Miraflores estates, the best in the Jerez District. The winery, barely 300 metres from the mouth of the River Guadalquivir, benefits from a maritime influence for maturing the wines, which leaves its mark upon the ageing and special characteristics of their range of Manzanillas, Amontillados and Olorosos.

The 'pasada' Manzanilla is a matured Manzanilla, which is closer in style to an Amontillado, more profound and generous in aromas than a fresh Manzanilla, whether classed as normal or 'en rama'. Manzanilla Pasada Pastrana is one of the most classic and highly-acclaimed by those with exacting palates. Matured for more than 12 years in century-old American oak casks, its notable aromas are pungent, salty and redolent of dried fruits and nuts, whilst proving complex, powerful and well-balanced on the palate. Very dry, with a delicate, elegant and persistent flavour. Ideal for aperitifs, tapas and starters like pâtés, assorted cheese boards, or even grilled oily fish.

Delicious

A satisfying aperitif for us but it must be drunk chilled. I left it too long in the fridge and had to wait for it to warm up a little before the flavours could be appreciated.

Very good Manzanilla!

I loved this wine, dry with slightly salty hints. Sherry and Manzanilla offer fabulous complex wines at very affordable prices and this is a very good example, dry and full flavoured, fantastic as an aperatif or with seafood.

Good manzanilla

Good manzanilla for the price from a high end bodega. It taste a bit young though for the calmed 12 years.

Manzanilla pasada de calidad.

Una buena manzanilla pasada con un precio ajustado, ideal para unas buenas gambas a la plancha.

Tradición

Producto de calidad que sigue la tradición gaditana de las manzanillas envejecidas. Suave salinidad y limpidez en copa. Esperaba mayor retrogusto. Le falta cuerpo para que el placer sea completo.
