More details



La Gitana, from Bodegas Hidalgo in Sanlúcar de Barrameda is one of the best selling Manzanilla in the world.


Manzanilla La Gitana it a not expensive sherry perfect for warm summer days. It’s easy to see where the name comes from: the label carries a ‘gitana’ (gypsy woman), painted for the firm by Joaquan Turina, as an homage to a bar in Málaga run by a gypsy, where Hidalgo’s Manzanilla was particularly popular.


The Palomino grapes for this wine are harvested in the bodega’s own vineyard in the areas of Balbaina y Miraflores, two of the most respected zones around Sanlúcar.



Nose: a lively, crisp, young Manzanilla. Yellow apple aromas, lemon and lots of floral notes (dried flowers, chamomile), slightly more than in other Manzanillas if you ask me. A touch of sea breeze and iodine.


Mouth: starts light and dry, with lots of apple flavours. Becomes saltier than the nose suggested, with subtle hints of liquorice and salted almonds. Very light herbal notes as well. Not a lot of yeasty flor to be noticed, I guess most of this is filtered out. Quite a short finish, which makes you have more.
