“A pulse-quickening sherry” Matthew Jukes

The annual release of Bodegas Hidalgo-La Gitana ‘En Rama’ is always much anticipated and we are very pleased to announce the arrival of the Spring 2020 bottling to great acclaim!

‘En Rama’ is sherry in its natural state and at it’s very best – lightly filtered, un-fined, pure free run juice directly from the barrel. This wonderful sherry demonstrates all that Manzanilla has to offer and is the next best thing to visiting the team at Hidalgo in Sanlúcar de Barrameda in these uncertain times.

La Gitana En Rama 2020

Hidalgo own all of their vineyards, very unusual for the region, and this allows total control over quality. The Palomino grapes used in the production of this great sherry hail from the vineyards in the prestigious Miraflores. Grown on the white albariza soils from the highest quality vineyards, En Rama is released in limited quantities as Hidalgo only select 35 of the best casks from the Bodegas. The ‘En Rama’ is best enjoyed sooner rather than later to preserve all of the natural freshness, delicacy and intensity.

Notably bready nose and really fresh. Tangier with more obvious acidity than many Manzanillas. Super-clean, racy and sleek. Definitely superior.” Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com

“the fresh-as-daisies, natural yeasts, honest and elemental style of Manzanilla. This is a bone dry, palate-invigorating, sharply tangy sherry….” Matthew Jukes, Money Week

Oh my goodness this is tasty! Indeed, I can’t for the moment think of a better aperitif or kick-starter to a lockdown-jaded appetite…. – Johnny Ray, The Spectator

“If you can’t get to sunny Spain then the latest Manzanilla ‘En Rama’ release is  the next best thing. Freshly bottled, straight from the cask, this is a bitingly crisp, salty, complex, light textured wine….It is a  perfect summertime aperitif….”  Christine Austin, The Yorkshire Post 

Can’t travel? Uncork the brand-new En Rama from La Gitana and it will waft you instantly to Sanlúcar. Savoury, smoky, nutty, creamy, succulent, intense. Sarah Jane Evans MW

It’s all sea salt and ocean breezes, with great energy. Amazing crispness and tangy vibrancy. Super-delicious. Decanter
