A blog and review on all things Sherry. It is about tasting, enjoyment and learning more about the World’s Finest Wine. "Sherry is a thoroughbred" as Javier Hidalgo rightly puts it. Included are the amazing local Brandies and the remarkably good table wines also produced in the province of Cádiz.
Made from grapes selected from the firm’s best vineyards
this is a new 100% Palomino table wine called Albariza, vintage 2017. The label
shows the image of a sea horse to reflect and pay homage to the wine’s origins
in pure albariza soil which began to form 33 million years ago when the Sherry
vineyards were beneath the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The wine is made exclusively
from mosto yema (first pressings) and the juice is fermented in stainless steel
tanks where the wine is left to deposit its lees afterwards before filtration and bottling. The result is a
young fresh joyful wine with real local character and it is perfect for
accompanying seafood, smoked fish, rice dishes and Asian dishes.
