For five generations the Hildago family have been producing sherrry in their 130 year old Bodega in the heart of Jerez de la Frontera. The soleras are housed in a traditional building of high ceilings, deep set walls and large windows, all designed to maintain an optimum level of coolness for fermentation and the essential development of flor. Viticulture for the palomino is on a mixture of limestone, clay and sand. La Panessa -the average age of the flor for the Panessa is 15 years. A far longer development than most sherry's can attest to. This extended period under flor produces a beautifully tarnished gold colour that is satisfyingly complex, laced with a saline nuttiness and followed by lingering herbal earthy flavours. These are sherry's of born out of patience, knowledge and heritage.
