Sherry is one of the wine world's most undervalued creations. Sherry's history alone could fill up a War and Peace-sized volume. Additionally, the production of Sherry, and its numerous styles, is complex enough to add a second volume to Sherry's tome. When confronted by Sherry & its vocabulary, many modern wine drinkers become dazed & confused by terms like flor, fino, olorosa, criadera and solera. It's easier to walk on by. However, a little time investment in understanding Sherry, will open up an entirely new world of wine scents and flavors. Allow me to present Sherry in a user friendly, 3-part format. Who knows, you may experience the sudden urge to grab a bottle and whip up a few tapas. It could happen.
