Vinification Details

  • The vinification process comprises of removal of the stalks, crushing, free-run juice draining and pressing. The main objective is to separate the wines which are to be aged under a layer of yeast, a process known as biological ageing during which a layer of yeast forms over the surface of the wine isolating it from the air, consuming the alcohol whilst giving the wine nutrients. The yeast is the miracle worker of biological ageing as it produces the typical characteristics of Fino Sherry.

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 des Real Tesoro' after leading 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 Estevez Group is the owner of more than 800 hectares of vineyards in this area. The sherry produced is reasonably pale and gets its reputation due to its delicate almond bouquet and its light and dry palate. The organic soil of this area is rich in calcil carbonate, silica and clay.
