"...They were right. HIDALDO'S LA GITANA Bodegas Hidalgo was founded in 1792 in Andalucia, and is one of Spain's oldest wine brands. Large Gitana is a Manzanilla.

Product Information for "Hidalgo la Gitana Manzanilla Sherry" »

Manufacturer's product description

A bone dry sherry from the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. It is in Sanlucar that this light wine picks up its notable 'salty' tang from sea breezes, giving it a different and intriguing personality to Jerez Fino.

It's 15% alcohol, which isn't much more than many table wines, but it does give some warmth and texture to the otherwise super-fresh palate," Jamie Goode, www.wineanorak.com, 2 April 2009
