bottling 20% of young PX is blended into the wine.
Pale in colour with just a hint of straw yellow at the rim. Powerful and acute on the nose, yet aromatic,
intriguing and inviting. Sensuously textured rather than brittle, absolutely bone dry, aristocratic and
very poised. Its profile is perfectly seamless right until the finish where fascinating savoury, nutty,
ripples conjure some charming, subtle and elusive final flavours. Fino Sherry, it is beyond dispute, is
absolutely the most incredible and undervalued alcoholic drink there is.Served chilled and try with salted almonds, light fish dishes or seafood tapas. Perfect with salt cod
(Bacalao) and fried hake.Grapes are sourced from FdeC's partners vineyards in the Jerez district. The soil type is Albariza.
Picking takes place in early September. The wine is made from the first pressing of grapes, this gives a
light fresh style. Fermentation takes place at relatively high temperatures to reduce fruit flavour. This
makes a very neutral wine which is perfect for the production of sherry. The wine undergoes
malolactic fermentation. In the February after harvest the wine is fortified with grape brandy up to
15% abv. Once at this stage the wine is then added to the youngest Criadera in the Solera. The wine
then begins its ageing process under flor. Only 20% of finished wine can be removed from the Solera
in one year. The average age of the Fino solera is 4-4.5 years old.Suitable for vegansSuitable for vegetarians
Pale, straw yellow in colour. Decidedly tangy, yeasty and salty nose. Lighter, crisper and more crackly
than its older sibling - Fino. The palate lures you in with soft apple and citrus flavours, then attacks
with a savoury nutty tang, and finishes with a salty reminder of the fresh spray of the sea.Served chilled and try with salted almonds, light fish dishes or seafood tapas, such as tortillas de
camarones. One of the few wines which matches smoked salmon. Suitable for vegans.Suitable for vegetarians.Grapes are sourced from Fernando de Castilla's partners' vineyards in the Jerez district. The soil type is

casks of oak American oak) in the youngest Criadera (scale) in the Solera (a Solera is the total number
of scales which can be from 3 up to 9). The wine then begins its ageing process under flor.
Periodically, a portion of the wine in a barrel is moved into the next scale, using tools called the canoa
(canoe) and rociador (sprinkler) to move the wine gently and avoid damaging the layer of flor in each
barrel. At the end of the series only a portion of the final barrel is bottled. This process is called
"running the scales". Only 20% of finished wine can be removed from the Solera in one year. The
ageing process of the Manzanilla Solera takes place in Sanlucar de Barrameda and the average age of
the sherry is 3 years old
