At sherry...

Whilst at the Wine & Spirits Fair the other week, I tried some delicious sherry.

I'm not talking about the sweet brown stuff, I'm talking about Manzanilla, Fino and Amontillado.

In his Saturday Mail column today, Matthew Jukes was raving about a Manzanilla that would be perfect chilled and accompanied by olives, nuts, salami and chorizo.

It was La Gitana, Bodegas Hidalgo, Sanlucar de Barrameda and is priced at 6.99 from Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Majestic.

He thinks it's "...one of the best wines on the planet."

I did post something on here about sherry ages ago, but just to re-cap:

Manzanilla (or Fino) is the lightest and driest of the sherries, with a delicate fresh yeasty flavour

Amontillado used to be a Fino but has spent longer in the solera (sherry ageing system) and has developed a darker colour and more robust aroma.

Cheers!
Jane
