VARIETALS - PALOMINO 750ML
BODEGA - EMILIO HIDALGO
STYLE - DRY
AGEING - 50 years in Solera andfrom the same solera founded in 1874, but this time bottled from the oldest casks. Average age of around 50 years. Only 3000 bottles are available each year.
TASTING - Huge full and expressive, impressively fresh and laden with charm. Very fragrant and complex. Some American oak and a trace of exotic wood like cedar gives a slight edge to the sweeter side with its toasted hazelnut and pistachio praline and honey, as does a decent acidity and a mere trace of its Fino past. There are hints of cinnamon, cooked orange peel, caramel, beeswaxed antique furniture, all beautifully nuanced and integrated. It just keeps on opening out in the glass.
On the mouth there's dry tones caramel and creamy nuts at first, which then disperses into lots of tangy nuttiness, traces of walnut, oak tannin - not much given the age, but along with that lovely tang it balances things and makes for terrific length. Super smooth, voluptuous, perfectly balanced and so, so good.
