Jerez – Xérèz – Sherry
Probably more than any wine, Sherry is a wine style that is defined by the processes used during maturation. None of the (complicated) key techniques, the solera system, biological ageing or oxidative ageing, are unique to this region, but it is in Jerez that they are exploited to their fullest extent.
Sherry Wines have sensory characteristics whose variations and nuances are rarely matched elsewhere in the wine world. Yet, it is a wine widely misunderstood.
This seminar will disentangle the confusion the different styles the Sherry wines pose us with, by learning its history, its winemaking and by tasting this captivating wine.
