Sherry, is a strong wine made from white grapes (Palomino Fino, Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez) according to the so-called solera method and which according to Spanish law must come from the triangular area between Jerez, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María in Spain. Sherry's production process is as follows: the grapes are harvested in early September, after the harvest, the Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez grapes are placed on straw mats in the sun to dry and concentrate the sugar content while the Palomino Fino grapes are quickly delivered to the winery, so that oxidation does not destroy the grapes, where they are destemmed and gently pressed while the Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez grapes undergo this process later, the pressed must, from the first pressing, is fermented in stainless steel tanks until the fermentation process is complete, the finished fermented dry wine with an alcohol strength of 11-12% is fortified to 15-19% with strong grape spirit and then it undergoes solera process. Unlike port wine, the wine is fortified after the wine's fermentation is complete. In some oak barrels during the solera process, a layer of flor (a skin of yeast) is formed during the aging and in some not. The wine, which is aged in oak barrels that have formed the layer of flor, does not come into contact with oxygen and becomes drier than the wine that has not formed the layer of flor, comes into contact with oxygen. Sherry is produced in several different styles: Amontillado (aged both under layer of flor and without layer of flor), Cream (sweetened variant of sherry, is made by sweetening Oloroso with sweet wines made of Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel), Fino (aged under layer of flor), Manzanilla (Fino that has been produced and aged in the town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda), Medium (sweetened variant of sherry, is produced by sweetening Amontillado with sweet wines made of Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel), Oloroso (aged for a longer period of time than Fino and Amontillado, and without layer of flor), Palo Cortado (rare sherry, an intermediate between Amontillado and Oloroso), Pale Cream (sweetened variant of sherry, produced by sweetening Fino with sweet wines made of Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel), Pedro Ximénez (very sweet sherry, made only of Pedro Ximénez) and Moscatel (very sweet sherry, made only of Moscatel).
