Within the wide variety of Spanish wines, Sherry wines offer an incredible diversity of styles, each with its own unique characteristics that make them fascinating and delicious. This wide range of styles is due to a combination of factors, including the type of grape used, the production process and the aging time. Below we explain some of them.

Sherry wine varieties

Fino de Jerez

Fino is a dry and light wine that is characterized by its pale color, its fresh aroma and its flavor of almond and green apple. This wine is made from the Palomino Fino grape and aged under a veil of flor, a type of yeast that protects the wine from oxidation.


Similar to Fino, Manzanilla is another dry, light wine that is produced exclusively in the Sanlúcar de Barrameda region. It is distinguished by its saline character and its almond and chamomile flavor. The sea breeze that blows over the Sanlúcar wineries contributes to their uniqueness.

Amontillado Sherry

Amontillado is a dry wine that begins its aging under flor, but is then exposed to air for additional oxidative aging. This gives it a darker color, a more pronounced aroma and a more complex flavor, with notes of nuts, caramel and spices.


Oloroso is a dry and robust wine that is aged exclusively oxidatively, without a veil of flor. It is characterized by its dark amber color, its intense aroma and its flavor of nuts, toffee and leather. It is a perfect wine to pair with rich and tasty dishes.

Peter Jimenez

Pedro Ximénez is a sweet wine made from the grape of the same name, which is left to dry in the sun to concentrate its sugars before fermentation. The result is a dense, dark and sweet wine, with flavors of raisins, figs and caramel. It is ideal as a dessert wine or to pair with blue cheeses.

Cream Variety

Cream is a sweet wine that is made by mixing dry wines such as Oloroso with sweet wines such as Pedro Ximénez. The result is a smooth and balanced wine, with notes of nuts, caramel and spices. It is an excellent option for those who prefer a sweet but not too heavy wine.
