ZONE AND PREPARATION:
The Denomination of Origin Jerez / Xerez / Sherry is one of the most important oenological zones in Spain and the World, whose history and wine culture has lasted from the Phoenician colonization to the present day. The moderate climate, with an average rainfall of 650 liters / year, but in the dry months, especially in the summer, it is necessary to count on the decisive contribution of the nocturnal dew (locally called Softness), motivated by its proximity to the Atlantic .
The relief is made up of small hills that rarely reach 100 meters in height, scarce arboreal vegetation, except for some scattered pine forests. The water masses are represented on the coast by the Atlantic Ocean and the Guadalete and Guadalquivir rivers. The harvest takes place in mid-August and the grape, mainly of the Palomino variety (very well adapted to soil conditions), is made in white, until obtaining a base wine (locally called must) delicate, pale, subtle and that it does not usually exceed 12 degrees of alcohol.
At the end of November / December, the delio is carried out and headed with wine alcohol, so that the wines destined for biological aging are left at 15º GL, while those destined for oxidative aging, are headed up to 17º-18º GL.
Two types of aging are developed in the Jerez area: aging understood as aging and evolution of the wine in wooden casks (oak barrels) and the so-called "biological aging", in which the wine evolves in a more dynamic way, driven by the activity of a biological veil.
The unique and characteristic aging system used in Jerez is the so-called Criaderas y Soleras System: This system is based on having a quantity of wine of the same style or type, in different aging / aging phases and distributed in different casks, normally 500 liters capacity. These phases or scales will go from the oldest, called "solera" because it is the one that is close to the ground, to the different "criaderas".
