Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference 12 YO Dry Amontillado Sherry. (£8, 50cl, Sainsbury’s)
World Sherry day has grown into international Sherry week - and it’s next week. Granny’s traditional favourite is a bit more trendy these days and is being touted as an alternative to wine with certain types of food, and it works. You could round a meal off with a glass of this one lightly chilled. A medal winner, this is a powerful, mature style with a medley of raisins, toffee and prunes that would go well with hard cheeses and a bowl of mixed nuts.
