Produced according to the traditional methods. The ageing method used for all Sherries is known as the Solera system which consists of a continuous blending of young Sherries with older ones resulting in a Sherry of consistent quality. Soil; zone: Albariza; Balbaina District, Jerez Superior. Press: Free run juice. Fermentation: Controlled fermentation using the natural yeast on the grape. The must is then fortified to 15.5% alc.vol. using grape alcohol. Matured in solera in casks of American oak in the Sherry town of Sanlucar de Barrameda. The maturation is first partially 'biological' i.e. under a thin veil of yeast or flor and partially oxidative, followed by a completely 'oxidative' process which begins as the yeast dies off due to lack of nutrients available in the Sherry. Then follows several decades of ageing in cask.

A very old dry fortified wine of Denomination of Origin, 'Jerez-Xeres-Sherry'.

Colour: Dark amber Aroma: Intensely rich pervading nutty aroma.

Taste: Dry, very nutty, full bodied.

Serve at room temperature as an aperitif or dry after dinner drink.
