The weekend starts here – and what a wine this is. The legendary Emilio Hidalgo fifteen year old fino. It is a gorgeous dark gold colour and has a big nose full of yeast and haystacks, (this wine can sometimes be quiet but this glass is very expressive). Fatty in the mouth and then a sensational, intense roast almond and yeast as it crosses the palate. Intense and long but fine and elegant too.
Emilio Hidalgo choose not to date sacas and bottlings but privately admit that different sacas have different personalities. Whatever, this wine is singing and is definitely one of the better examples I have tried. Really excellent.
