Sweet (and Sweetened) Sherry wine
More than 95% of the grapes grown in DO Jerez-Xérès-Sherry are Palomino Fino. Pedro Ximénez (PX) and Moscatel are for making sweet wine. However, nowadays PX musts are mostly bought from the neighboring area Montilla-Moriles.
The Magic of Flor
Flor is a layer of yeast growing on the top of the wine in the barrel. It is a result of a unique terroir in Jerez. It also protects the sherry from oxidation. This is the reason why Fino wine has a unique aroma like bread, nuts, and the seaside. If the flor is healthy, it will grow thicker in summer and thinner in winter. They are alive!
Do you know the famous Champagne grower also use Flor to age one of their Champagne!
