Sherries are some of the best value in the wine world but they are a specific tasted. I love them. This wine sells for under $20 and is excellent if treated right. Light golden in color. The nose has some volatile acidity (think paint thinner) but also a nice nuttiness to it. It is fortified although this style has less oxidation than many sherries. On the palate, this is dry as a bone. drinking on its own is not a fun experience. But, add some salty foods and the pairing is transformative. A nuttiness with a dry acidity that is refreshing. It is best with oilves, nuts and crackers but dried meats will work well to (and salted fish).
