Produced according to the traditional methods. The ageing method used for all Sherries is known as the Solera system which consists of a continuous blending of young Sherries with older ones resulting in a Sherry of consistent quality. Matured in solera in casks of American oak in the Sherry town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The maturation is first partially ‘biological’ i.e. under a thin veil of yeast or flor and partially oxidative, followed by a completely ‘oxidative’ process which begins as the yeast dies off due to lack of nutrients available in the Sherry. Then follows several decades of ageing in cask.
