Sherry is a type of wine produced in and around the town of Jerez in southern Spain. It is a fortified wine produced from three main grape varieties - Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat (Moscatel). After a dry white wine is made in the normal way it is then transferred to oak 'botas' or barrels and fortified and may or may not be allowed to develop a 'flor' or layer of yeast over the surface of the wine which affects the degree to which the Sherry is allowed to oxidise. The wine is then aged in a Solera sytem of barrels which is unique to Jerez. At some point naturally sweet wine may be blended into the Sherry to produce different styles and sweetnesses of Sherry. The driest styles of sherry are fino and Manzanilla (which is produced in the nearby town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Next is Amontillado, followed by Oloroso, which are much darker and richer than the fine and pale finos - confusingly there are different styles of both of these. Then there are sweet styles, Jerez Dulce, the best of these are often made from Pedro Ximenez (PX) such at the Sacristia de Romate from Sanchez Romate. With its wide variety of style Sherry is an extremely versatile wine and can be used as an aperitif or as a match for starters, main courses, cheese and desserts - it is still a very under-valued wine. Other good Bodegas are Argueso and Gutierrez Colosia. More information can be found at the Official Sherry Website.
