It is basically an apretif which is aged using the Solera system.

How to store

Store dry sherry bottle upright in a dark place. This keeps oxidization to a minimum and ensures the taste is kept as vibrant as possible. A good sherry can be safely stored unopened for 18-36 months, depending on the type of sherry. Once opened the flavor starts to fade, so dry sherry must be refrigerated to keep it as fresh as possible.
