Sherry is the underappreciated treasure of the wine world on its way back into popularity. These ancient wines have been grown exclusively in the Cadiz area of Spain since for over 3000 years, and halfway through that legacy Christopher Columbus famously spent more on sherry than weapons when stocking for his trip to the New World. Depending on the fermentation process, sherry is classified as fino, manzanilla, manzanilla pasada, amontillado, oloroso, palo cortado or jerez dulce. These share sherry specific qualities: often dry, resistant to oxidisation and without a specific vintage year, as each contains various vintages, which results in a complex taste that keeps the sherry experience interesting and ripe for conversation.
