A sherry weekend for us
The Manzanilla had an intense bruised apple, almond, yeasty aroma and felt quite oily on the palate. Bone dry, perfect with a few olives
I’m a bit cross regarding the Oloroso - why has no-one ever told me to try it before? It was amazing. I hear people talk about Sherries being under-valued for the wine that they are - and this must be a perfect example. It really should be provided as a coming of age induction. “Passed your A-levels - here try an Oloroso.”
My notes recall an intense aroma of Demerara sugar, dried dark fruits - figs, orange peel & walnut. With all that flavour I expected a sticky sugary high alcohol mess. Instead I was met with a dry (medium) fresh, well balanced mouthful with a finish that went on for ages. All that for just £13.
If you have passed your A -levels and haven’t tried it, here’s the link:
Would love to hear others reflections on Sherry and what I should try next. On recommendation from here I already have this in the basket:
Enjoy the weekend!
