    Product description

    Hidalgo Amontillado Seco Napoleón is originally aged to become a Manzanilla using the traditional solera system in casks of American oak. However, certain casks show a deeper, nuttier character, and are transferred to a separate solera to age oxidatively, as part of the Amontillado blend. Amontillado Napoleón is made from grape must of the Palomino fino variety, carefully cultivated in white albariza soils, highly valued to obtain very fine, high-quality musts.

    Hues of mahogany and rich hazelnut aromas. Full and long on the palate with subtle nuttiness and a dry and refined finish.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Bodegas Hidalgo – La Gitana

    Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence, it is widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house. To this day, Hidalgo is still family run, currently being overseen by the eighth generation of the Hidalgo family. Passing down from generation to generation, continuity and quality have always been the most important themes for the company, which uses only grapes from their own vineyards in Jérez Superior. Hidalgo own 100% of their vineyards, which is very rare for the region and means they have complete control over quality. View our selection.

    Vineyard & Winemaking

    Hidalgo has one of the most historic vineyards in the region, El Cuadrado (the Square). It appears in maps from the early 1800s in one of the main districts in the area with the highest altitude in the whole Sherry area, allowing the vineyard to get sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean. The soil is 100% albariza, rich in carbon calcium, making it one of the best in the Sherry area.

    For the ageing process of sherry, especially Manzanilla, where the winery is located and how it is built it is very important. The main winery, San Luis, is the tallest winery in the area, 14.5 meters high, built in a cathedral style, allowing the hot air to go up and maintaining a more mild temperature at the floor level where the casks are. All the Hidalgo wineries are just 300 meters from the Atlantic Ocean, influenced by the sea breeze.

    Wines Produced

    Many sherries are produced at Bodegas Hidalgo with some of the best being La Gitana Manzanilla, Hidalgo Pasada Pastrana, Hidalgo Oloroso Faron, Hidalgo Triana Pedro XImenez and a range of Very Old Rare Sherries aged for over 30 years: Amontillado Napoleon, Palo Cortado Wellington and Pedro Ximenez Triana
