Sherry Tasting Pack - 4 half bottles

Compare Fino, Manzanilla, Amontillado and Oloroso styles of sherry


Paula Goddard's review "As a present or just because you want to try and compare four different sherries, then this tasting pack is the one to buy. Because these are the four best sherries I’ve tasted ever. All taste fresh and nicely balanced, and all work equally well as an aperitif or matched to nuts and dried fruits. The oloroso sherry tastes of freshly hulled nuts, while the manzanilla tastes of light treacle with a match light apple freshness. Expect long-lasting flavours of lemon butter from the amontillado, and hazelnut astringency from the fino. A fine collection." (www.paulagoddard.com)

Fino - Very dry, light-bodied Sherry that is straw-like in colour. The characteristic aromas associated with Finos are almonds. Typically, good Finos comes in at about 15% alcohol by volume. Amazing with almonds, olives, ham, and chips and dips.

Manzanilla - Also dry, and pale in color. A "fino" style of Sherry made in Sanlucar and best with seafood and tapas.

Amontillado - In between Fino and Oloroso in terms of colour and body. This Sherry loses its flor during the aging process and yields deeper colour and a lovely nutty flavour. The characteristic aromas associated with Amontillados are hazelnuts. This Sherry is great with oily fish and chicken dishes.

Oloroso - Dark in colour, rich in flavour. Olorosos typically have a remarkable walnut aroma and a swirled caramel flavour making them a top pick for rich meats and flavourful cheeses (consider Manchego, a delicious Spanish cheese made from sheep's milk).

There is an old Andalusian adage about what to eat with sherry; if it swims, fino or manzanilla; if it flies, amontillado; and if it walks, oloroso.

We have not included our Pedro Ximénez because it is so different from the other 4 dry wines; but it is well worth trying Pedro Ximénez
