Facts about Sherry Wines:
A VERY SPECIAL WHITE WINE: Sherry Wines are essentially matured white wines. They have a wide range of colors from very light to dark. So when in doubt about serving, follow the same principle as with other white wines and drink them well chilled in a white wine glass.
THREE VARIETIES: Palomino grape for dry wines. Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel grapes for sweet wines.
UNIQUE PRODUCTION PROCESS: The wines are produced according to the traditional Criaderas and Solera system. An aging system that combines wines from different vintages.
AGEING: The aging is the evolution of the wines in American oak wooden barrels and determines their organoleptic profile. There are two types of ripening: Organic ripening: ripening under “flor” Oxidative ripening: ripening without “flor”
Flor: A yeast that changes and enriches the wine while protecting it from oxidation. The flor is one of Sherry's most remarkable oenological wonders.
