Xixarito Oloroso wine is an Oloroso wine made from the Palomino Fino grape. This wine is made and aged in the wineries of Jerez.

 

It is a wine made from palomino grapes. The special structure that it shows from the beginning advises tasters to use it for oxidative aging. That is why alcohol is added up to 17°, thus preventing the development of the flor veil, with which the wine ages exposed to oxygen through the traditional criaderas and solera system. The result is a highly structured and complex wine.

Did you know?

Although Olorosos sometimes reach relatively high alcohol content, even above 20% vol., this is simply the result of the long aging process, in which the butt allows the evaporation of a significant part of the water contained in the wine. , thus concentrating not only the alcohol, but also the rest of the components that provide aromas, flavors and complexity.

Development and Aging

Coming from the complete fermentation of palomino grape musts, olorosos are "vocational" wines; the special structure that they show from the beginning advise tasters to classify them for oxidative aging. The initial heading at 17% vol. of alcohol prevents the development of the flor veil, so the wine ages exposed at all times to the slow action of oxygen through the traditional system of criaderas and solera.

The slow loss of water through the walls of the wooden casks fosters a continuous process of concentration, which makes the wine gain in structure, smoothness and complexity.
