Production, Maturing and Ageing : Unlike traditional sherries, aged by means of the “Solera y Criaderas” system, these vintage wines are aged statically. For production purposes grape must originating from the old vines of the Añina and/or Carrascal vineyard zones, or Pagos, is first selected and then fortified either to 15º for biological ageing or to 18º for oxidative ageing.. These wines are then closely studied throughout their ageing process, during which time they are left untouched until the moment they are selected for bottling. In contrast to the homogeneity provided by the Criaderas y Solera system, during which wine of different ages are methodically blended, each of these wines is unique and special. They are wines that offer a true reflection of the year’s harvest and its particular climatic conditions, as well as the individual evolution of each during its specific static ageing process.
