Jerez - Spain

Sherry is a fortified wine produced in southern Spain around the towns of Jerez, SanlĂșcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa MarĂ­a. In the 1990s, the European Union restricted the use of name "Sherry" to the wine made from this region. It is mostly made from the Palomino grape, accounting for nearly 95% of the region's plantings, but Moscatel and Pedro Ximenez can also be used. While the wine is aging in the barrel, a naturally occurring yeast native to the region, known as flor, will develop and distinguish certain styles of Sherry. The flor needs fresh wine in order to survive and is added by the use of a solera system that also gradually blends the wines of different vintages together. Palomino wine, by itself, typically ferments to an alcohol level of around 12%, with Sherry producers adding brandy to the wine in order to increase the alcohol level or kill the flor yeast, which will not thrive in alcohol levels above 16%.

Fino means fine in Spanish and, accordingly, the greatest expression of a Fino (or Manzanilla) sherry is very delicate, light and elegant. Aromas of almonds are a classic characteristic displayed in this wine. It is also be deliciously refreshing, clean and dry, with just the right balance of acidity, extract and alcohol so that none of these elements are overt on the palate.
