EL TRESILLO AMONTILLADO FINO, Hidalgo.  Deep brown, gold, salty like a Fino, also smoky dried grasses, stony minerality, flinty, nutty, noticeable fruitiness, bitter orange, sour apricot and smoky quince.  Basically this outstandingly good sherry has it all going on.  It is both unusual and delicious.  It starts as a Fino matured for more than ten years under Flor.  Then it spends more than five additional years ageing in contact with oxygen.  This changes its characteristics from that of pure Fino to something unique – Amontillado Fino. Absolutely superb and you can drink with almost anything, even a steak according to Jancis Robinson!

This bodega was founded in the mid nineteenth century by Emilio Hidalgo Hidalgo, so good they named him twice.  the bodega lies in the old part of the city of Jerez de la Frontera.

The company is owned and operated by the fifth generation of his descendants. The winery has been located, since its inception, in the old part of the city of Jerez de la Frontera; the buildings being of classical Andalucian construction with thick walls, enormous windows, and high, open beamed ceilings are ideal for the ageing and blending of wine. By the beginning of the 20th century, Don Emilio Hidalgo e Hidalgo had a thriving business with an office in London and a presence in many countries. The company was incorporated in 1970 and began to expand its export business in the English, Dutch, German and Austrian markets, as well as expanding into the United States, Japan, Denmark, Italy, France and Belgium.

Currently the winery houses casks of the original wine used to found the company, which is carefully renewed and enriched by the fifth generation of the founding family dedicated to the wine industry. We are listing four wines which demonstrate the wonderful complexity that comes with the ageing process. Even if you don’t know your soleras from your criaderas you will appreciate the amazing richness yet subtle balance of these great sherries.
