THE AGING OF SHERRY


The aging of sherry takes place in one of two ways:
v BIOLOGICAL AGING: The sherry ages in contact with a film of yeast (Flor) that changes the characterstics of the wine be metabolising elements within the wine and controlling the rate of oxidation.
v PHYSIO-CHEMICAL AGING: The sherry is in direct contact with air and its immediate oxidising effects.
