Vinification Details

  • The vinification process comprises of removing the stalks, crushing and then pressing the grapes. 20% of the juice is fermented in American oak casks and the rest in stainless steel tanks. In order to become sherry, the wine then undergoes fortification under a layer of yeast, a process known as biological ageing, in the traditional Criadura and Solera system. Sugar is added to give the Pale Cream sherry its sweetness together with the typical Fino characteristics from the yeast.

History

  • The history of one of the largest Sherry houses dates back to 1760 when King Carlos III of Spain appointed His Excellence Don Joaquin as the 'Marqués del Real Tesoro' after he led his fleet to victory against an onslaught of pirate ships. In 1898 the same title was bestowed upon the grandson of the first Marqués who founded a brand name after his title 'Marqués del Real Tesoro'. This prestigious name is now carried around the world and associated with some of the most select Sherry of Jerez.

Regional Information

  • The wines from Marqués del Real Tesoro are aged and produced in the area of Jerez-Xeres-Sherry, a Denomination of Origin protected by the Sherry Board. The sherry is produced from grapes grown in organic soil, which is rich in nutrients, and gets its reputation due to its delicate almond bouquet and its nutty sweet palate.
