PRODUCTION AND AGEING
Soil: Albariza, a predominantly chalky soil with a great capacity for absorbing water,it allows the roots to penetrate deeply, picking up a very diverse range of substrates that are then transmitted to the wine.
Climate: A temperate climate with hot summers and the notable influence of the Atlantic Ocean, both due to the poniente wines in the summer, as well as the frequent morning showers, providing the plant with a moderate but continuous supply of water.
Winemaking: The Pedro Ximénez grapes are dried in the sun and then are gently pressed, followed by temperature-controlled fermentation at 24ºC. Once it reaches 11-12º alcohol, it is fortified with liqueur to 19º alcohol.Once fortified, the sherry is transferred to 500-litre American oak barrels, where it ages through a unique solera system. The special microclimate of El Puerto de Santa Maria, where our winery is situated, prints its marvellous personality on this wine through favouring slow oxidative ageing.
