Fino sherry makes one of the best appetizers, being ideal to accompany all kinds of tapas, seafood, fish, ham, soft cheeses and nuts. It should be served cold!
The white “albariza” soils on which the Palomino grapes grow in Balbiana and Miraflores are considered some of the best in the Jerez region. The Fino Heredad de Hidalgo is made from Palomino grapes grown in Hidalgo’s own vineyards where the harvest usually begins around the start of September, when the grapes reach perfect maturation. Using only the free run juice, with no pressing, the grapes then ferment using the vineyard’s own natural yeasts and while temperature controlled at all times. Once fermentation is complete, the musts are fortified with wine alcohol up to 15%. In American oak butts, the wine aged under the flor. The maturation of this wine is carried out with the traditional system of Criaderas and Solera, which allow the wines to acquire their excellent qualities. Finally thw wine is clarified and stabilized by treatment at low temperatures before filtering and bottling.
