A fabulous brandy from Spain's Jerez region, Bodegas Hidalgo drew Doscientos Solera Gran Reserva from casks which previously held Oloroso and cream sherry, as part of a solera system. A fabulous balance of sweet and dry notes here!
Denominacien de Origen: Brandy de Jerez, Sherry Brandy, comes exclusively from the Sherry District. The production and ageing of the Sherry Brandy follows the traditional methods of the region.
The brandy is obtained from grape distillate and then aged in butts of American oak for several years. The casks have previously been used in the ageing of Cream and Oloroso Sherries, which ensure that the brandy gains exceptional smoothness with ageing. The ageing system used is known as the Solera system,(fractional blending) which consists of a continuous mix of young brandies with older ones resulting in a brandy of consistent quality.
The base brandy that formed this particular 'solera' originated from the cellars of one of the members of the Hidalgo family where it had been kept under lock and key for two generations without being touched.
