Colors are specific to the carriers because carriers request those colors are specific to them. Its called differentiation, look it up.So this is the reason why we say that sherry starts when other wines finish.By the way, what is your view about amontillado sherry? This is my favourite! I love the complexity that both ageing processes give it.link my name to see my website now,thanks.

Interesting writing! Are there any predictions that you maybe willing to divulge in order to illustrate your second section a bit more? cheers

Hi Jim, great article. It was really nice meeting you (I am the one trying to hide in the photo of the train at GB).
Just another point, before the solera system there is another stage called "sobre tablas", where the young sherry is kept for 12-18 months in the botas (barrels). This young sherry wine is already fortified (normally 15% vol) and it is really to start the solera as soon as it is needed at the bodega. This time is not even put into consideration for the minimum ageing time, 3 year in the case of Fino.
So this is the reason why we say that sherry starts when other wines finish.
By the way, what is your view about amontillado sherry? This is my favourite! I love the complexity that both ageing processes give it.

I love all the thing you tell.
Just 2 things:
Amontillado is not the mixing of two wines but the mixing of two kinds of ageing.
Thanks!
