We Americans have been wrong about sherry.
We Americans have been wrong about sherry, said Dave McIntyre in The Washington Post. Dismissing it as “a sweet wine past its time,” we rarely explore the full range of this Spanish fortified wine or sample its complex, food-friendly exemplars.
El MaestroSierraOloroso15 Años($15 for 375 ml). “Wonderful flavors of roasted hazelnut and herbs” highlight this oloroso—a rich, dry sherry.
Grant La Garrocha Amontillado($14 for 375 ml). A great match for moderately spiced dishes, this amontillado is “definitely not sweet” but offers hints of caramel, hazelnut, and orange peel.
Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana($16 for 500 ml). The top-selling Manzanilla in America features “delicate, briny flavors” and has “impeccable balance.”
