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).
