Manzanilla La Gitana is produced according to the traditional methods as stipulated by the controlling body of the Denomination of Origin Manzanilla-Sanlcar de Barrameda. The vines are planted in Albariza soil in the areaBalbaina andMiraflores in the Jerez Superior District (200 Ha approx). The wine is produced from only free run juice. Fermentation is controlled in water-cooled stainless steel tanks, using the natural yeast on the grape. Fortification to 15% alc.vol then takes place using grape alcohol. The wine is then matured in solera or fractional blending system in casks of American oak in the coastal town of Sanlcar de Barrameda. The maturation is under a veil of yeast or flor thereby ensuring a light dry taste. Only in Sanlcar de Barrameda can the flor grow on the wine 12 months of the year to give Manzanilla its unique style. La Gitana is bottled exclusively by Bodegas Hidalgo-La Gitana S.A. under original brand label La Gitana, one of Spains oldest wine brands and today one of the countrys most popular.
