The sherry is a mutated alcoholic wine, also known as Xérès or Jerez, referring to the city located in Spain at the South of Andalusia. This wine is elaborated using a process adding eau de vie to the wine, preventing its oxidation while in contact with air and multiplying its alcoholic density. Three principal grape varieties are used to produce the sherry:
The Palomoni Fino or Listo that produces the dry sherry. The Pedro Ximenez that elaborates smoother Sherries thanks to a great sugar concentration. The Muscat, also called Moscatel, produces smooth sherry, its culture being less popular that the later.
