Product Description

The neutral base wine was produced from Chenin Blanc and Colombard grapes and partially forti ed with neutral wine spirits. Following inoculation with a or yeast it was left for 12 months before being introduced into the Solera system for maturation. In preparation for bottling the wine was blended with sweet Jerepigo to achieve the desired sugar level. Additional notes of Sherry: Solera system: The Solera system is a very old traditional method for the making of sherry and aims to ensure a consistency of product. It involves the use of barrels for maturation and each year a percentage of between 10% - 30% is removed for bottling. This allows the barrel to be topped up with wine that has freshly come off flor. Flor Yeast: A film of yeast on the surface of wine protecting the wine from oxidation and converting wine acid into aldehydes, the typical flavour of sherry products. Sherry: A fortied wine made from white grapes produced from an area in Spain near the town of Jerez. Only sherry from this region (sherry triangle) is allowed to be labeled as sherry. Being respectful of the regions of the world, the word "Cape" is added to indicate a wine made in the traditional sherry style.
