Fino Maestro Sierra is a delicate Fino wine from Jerez made with the Palomino variety by the El Maestro Sierra winery in the D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry.

Maestro Sierra is a small winery with almost two centuries of history. It all started in 1830 when José Antonio Sierra became a producer and made his dream come true. He went from manufacturing barrels for the most prestigious wineries in Jerez to bottling his own wines. Today his family continues the legacy, maintaining the same quality and prestige that the founder established.

Fino Maestro Sierra is made with the local native variety from Marco de Jerez; the Palomino. This variety is very resistant to drought and is able to survive harsh conditions. The vines grow in the typical albariza soil, a type of land with whitish pebbles that is characterised by its ability to store water in the subsoil from the short but intense rains.

The Fino Maestro Sierra vinification process begins with the production of a base wine. It is then topped up to 15% alcohol to encourage the yeast cap to develop. This is a natural layer of yeast that completely covers the surface of the wine, preventing possible oxidation and giving the wine some unique organoleptic characteristics. The wine undergoes a biological aging process in 500-litre American oak casks and, following the traditional Marco de Jerez system of criaderas and soleras, it ages for a minimum of three years.

Fino Maestro Sierra is a fino wine with two centuries of prestigious history behind it. A real gem for a very good price and a great introduction to the world of fortified wines.

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
