This cream dulce sherry is comprises 75% Palomino and 25% Pedro Ximenez grape varieties and is aged an average of 8 years in American oak casks in a traditional solera.

The Palomino grape must from which Solera 1847 is made comes from the first press of the continuous presses. Following fermentation to between 11% and 12% alcohol the wine is fortified to 18% alcohol and then enters the Oloroso solera. The Pedro Ximenez grapes used undergoes a strong pressing similar that that for olive oil production. The must then ferments although stops at around 7% alcohol due to sugar stress. The wine is then fortified to 15% alcohol and then enters into the Pedro Ximenez solera. After ageing separately for some 4 years the two grapes varieties are blended: 75% Palomino and 25% Pedro Ximenez. The blend then enters into the Solera 1847 solera where is will spend a further 4 years.
