Hidalgo Fino N/V

The pale, clean color of this wine belies its beauty and complexity. Made from 100% Palomino, the wine is elegant and bone-dry on the palate, yet the finish lingers on. The finesse of this wine comes from the fact that Hidalgo uses finos from aged soleras, sometimes 6 and 7 years old, when many producers choose to bottle their finos at 2-3 years.  This extra aging adds refinement on the palate.

Tasting Notes

All Finos develop under the veil of flor and this is evident on the nose of this wine, showing its bready, yeasty character.  Opening with typical notes of green olives, this refreshing fino gives way to delicate wildflowers on the nose.

Food Pairing

Pairs perfectly with classic tapas but can also last the whole meal through with seafood and even sushi. This wine is meant to be served very-well chilled and can be used an aperitif as well as the most refreshing accompaniment to many classic, simple sea
