Tap for gallery


Product Information

Organic Fino sherry has a number of different names like flor sherry or dry apera sherry or dry sherry or dry apera wine - a bone-dry fino style Apera sherry made from madeleine grapes we call it "Fleur de Madeleine" after the grape variety. 

The ullaged flor fino sherry cask is topped up each year to keep the floating flor sherry yeast alive, some sweet orange notes on the nose with nutty rancio and well developed briny flor, the 16% alcohol is well integrated, only 100 x 750 mL bottles of this well-made flor wine are made each year. 

Flor is the thin layer or veil of flor sherry yeast cells that forms on top of fino sherry wines. It is a kind of creamy coloured, wrinkled, waxy foam, up to a centimetres thick, that protects the wine from air contact and that can only grow naturally in the specific climate of the Meditteranean like Swan Valley.

This estate-grown and made organic dry apera sherry wine is natural wine and hence, is unfined and unfiltered. This organic Apera wine is also (VEGAN friendly) with some harmless sediment to be found in the dry sherry bottle.

Served chilled at 9 degrees Celcius, as an aperitif with oysters, seafood and cheeses. "Oh I love it", says Duncan Harris, winemaker.
