Bodegas Hidalgo Gobernador Oloroso Seco Sherry
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla, Olorosos|
"The youngest Oloroso from Emilio Hidalgo. Gobernador is a dry Oloroso of around 12 years old. Aromas of the classic dried fig and walnut cake, but also particularly chalky notes. Surprising malty notes (breakfast cereals). Caramelized sugars (think Crème brûlée) and light salted toffee. Hints of truffle, as well as some coastal notes. Sweetish side of flavor, with plenty of hazelnuts and milk chocolate. Honey glazed meat roast. Some vague salty notes and vibrant acidity, which gives it an energetic impression. Then back to nutty notes. Medium finish. Serve as a stand alone aperitif or as a wine, with any savory foods."
