300 sunny days in SanlucarSherry is a dry vine with high amount of alcohol (17 %). They produce him inside of Sherry triangle (El triangulo del Sherry), the triangle is formed from towns Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda. If Sherry is produced in town Sanlucar de Barrameda they named him manzanilla. Thats because town Sanlucar de Barrameda is near Atlantic Ocean and that sea climate influences on ripening of the wine and grapes. The influence of Atlantic Ocean is very important of the whole region, because the Atlantic supplys very dry Andaluzian soil with humidity. This is a region which has almost 300 days of sun during a year. Soil in the lake is totally different, it is almost white, they called her albariza. Albariza is result of sedimentation of the sea, which left behind very rich organic soil, that holds back humidity.
