HIDALGO “La Gitana” Manzanilla Sherry

(Jerez, Spain) $20

With its unreal precision and filigreed character, Hidalgo’s La Gitana (the Gypsy) Manzanilla possesses a gossamer-like complexity that is evident every second you drink it—from the layered aroma of green moss, green olives, bitter almonds, and vanilla to the crisp, sea-fresh snap of minerally flavor to the wine’s shimmering, nutty, minty finish. Manzanillas simply do not get more inspiring or vivid. All you need come Saturday night is an ice-cold bottle of this, some roasted almonds, a bowl of cracked green olives, and a chunk of aged Manchego cheese. Plus one good wine drinking partner.
