Sherry is another of those wines that definitely deserves to be more appreciated by the wine lovers. Especially the wonderfully dry and crisp fino with some olives or Serrano ham, not to mention manzanilla an amontillado. But forget the cloyingly sweet kinds and above all auntie’s Bristol Cream that was wheeled out of the cupboard once a year (less and less fresh). But to be honest, there are indeed some wonderful sweet olorosos too.

  • Manzanilla: 17%
  • Fino: 23%
  • Pale cream: 8%
  • Amontillado: 6%
