Product Information : 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. Delicious on its own or serve with seafood, salads or white meats.In the press:"It's quite rich textured, with some appley, nutty (acetaldehyde) notes countering the bracing, almost salty freshness. 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
