Winemaking of Sierra Morena Palido
While avoiding the contact between grapes, juice, cider and wine as possible in the winemaking of "normal" wine to prevent oxidation, it is desirable in the production of sherry and sherry-like wine such as the Sierra Morena Palido organic wine. Therefore, the must fermented in open fermentation vats, whereby a yeast pile forms on the wine and the yeast does not sink as usual from the bottom of the fermentation tank. The maturing of the Sierra Morena Palido takes place in large wooden barrels in the Solera process. A certain amount of the longest matured wine is removed from the barrel and replaced with the next oldest wine. Depending on the quality and the desired flavor, this process can take several years.
