Winemaking

After hand harvesting the grapes into small plastic buckets the bunches are transferred to the winery for pressing. The resulting liquid is fermented at warm temperatures (around 25 degrees) for around 12 days to give a fairly neutral, dry base wine at around 11% alcohol. This base wine is then classified depending on the type of sherry being made.This base wine is then fortified to 15% and spends 4 years ageing under a protective veil of flor, after this time it is re-fortified with grape spirit up to 18.5%, thus killing the flor and allowing the sherry to age oxidatively for a further 4 years further developing its complexity and colour.

The Carrascal vineyard is planted exclusively to palomino Fino variety. The average age of the vines is 15-20 years, this average is maintained through frequent replantings to ensure the vines stay at their productive peak, with a planting density of 4,000vines\ha. The vines are pruned in the traditional 'stick & thumb' method (vara y pulga) and face due south to the sea to benefit from on-shore breezes that cool and bring humidy to the vines.
