The aging is biological and oxidative in Jerez American oak casks with the traditional system of criaderas and soleras, with 12 years under flower veil and 4 years of oxidative aging. After the fermentation of the palomino grape must, the most delicate wines are chosen and topped with wine alcohol up to 15% vol. This fortified wine called "sobretablas" is intended for aging in Jerez casks, usually 500 liters, so that the flower veil develops on the surface. Formed by yeasts of the genus Saccharomyces cerevisiae, this veil transforms the sobretablas into chamomile over time. The aging system is characterized by the sacks and dew of the wine between the criaderas and soleras of the different wineries. After 8 years of biological aging, the wine is fortified with wine alcohol up to 18º and enters an oxidative aging system for 4 years. Oxidative aging is also carried out in American oak casks, with the sack and spray system. The casks are completely filled and the wine undergoes a physicochemical oxidation that transforms the chamomile into an amontillado.
Perfect accompaniment to appetizers such as ham, dried fruits and old cheeses
