Bodegas Hidalgo – Oloroso Seco Faraón
The ‘Faraon’ is the head of an Andalusian gypsy family. Oloroso Seco Faraon
is aged oxidatively for several years in butts of American oak. The grapes are sourced exclusively from our own vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores. Matured in casks of American oak in a “solera” or “fractional blending” system, in the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows an average of seven years of ageing in cask, to give a dry and wonderfully complex wine.
Intensely rich pervading walnut aromas. The palate is dry, intense, rich and deep with a long and powerful flavour.
A pungent aperitif, but also great with many foods: Tapas, soup, dry cheeses and even beef.
