Think only your grandma drinks sherry? Think again! NV Bodegas Hidalgo Napoleon Amontillado Sherry. Raisiny, dark fruit, even a touch of oxidation, but a dry finish. Great value. Get to know sherry!
Pedro Ximenez is a delightful with desserts. Montilla-Moriles, located in the south of the Andalucian province of Córdoba, is an historical wine region of Spain. The wine is similar to the Sherry of Jerez, but has suffered from the comparison. Montilla's dry finos have been rougher than the equivalent Sherry for lack of care in the wine-making process. In the past much of the region's production of Pedro Ximenez, the predominant grape in Montilla, was shipped to Jerez to sweeten their Sherries.

Spain - Jerez. This is Sherry Country in southwest Spain, centred around Jerez, the town that gave its name to this nectar. How did they come up with the idea of fortifying wines after fermentation is complete with brandy in the first place? I am just very glad that they did. Sahara dry to honey sweet, these wines are hugely underrated and the tours of the bodegas are fascinating.
