The Palomino must destined for Solera 1847 comes from the first press off the continuous presses so as to abtain slightly more structure and body. Following fermentation to between 11% and 12% alc the wine is fortified to 18% alc and then enters the Oloroso solera. An empty space of 100liters is left in the casks so that wine has a large surface area in contact with the oxygen and therefore undergoes complete oxidization. The Pedro Ximenez grape undergoes a strong press similar to olive oil production. The must the begins to ferment although stops at around 7% alc due to sugar stress. At this time the wine is fortified to 15% alc and then enters into the Pedro Ximenez solera.
