Jerez-xérès-sherry Wine

Jerez, or Xerez, is in southwest Spain in Andalucia (Andalusia), taking its name from the town of Jerez de la Frontera. “Sherry” is both the Anglican pronounciation of the region and the fortified wine it is known for. It occupies the “Golden Triangle” lying between the cities of Jerez, El Puerto and Sanlucar de Barrameda.

Jerez has three main soil types: Albariza is thin and chalky, best suited for growing the lighter styles of sherry from Palomino grapes. Baros is clay-dense and lightly chalky and Arenas is sandy, both more conducive to growing Pedro Ximenez and Moscatel for sweeter styles. The changes in climate also influence grape-growing. Areas that benefit from cooler ocean winds preserve vital acidity in the grapes and cellar temperature control.

Once the wine is fermented, it is monitored and designated for fortification, which is done by adding brandy (usually Destillado from La Mancha) to it, and further aging. The richness of the still wine and the amount of Read more »

  • Bodegas Hidalgo Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Manzanilla la Gitana 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Bitter finish akin to drinking puréed radicchio. Maybe it would be better with food? Yeast, yeast, yeast. Densely packed - currants, mineral, oak. Long after taste. Admittedly complex, but was turned off by the taste so didn't savor it sufficiently to say anything more insightful. Read More

  • Emilio Lustau Solera Reserva Old East India Emilio Lustau S.A NV

    Snoothrank:

    Delicious. Purchased based on Parker's 94 rating. I'll admit, it took me till the second glass to fully appreciate this wine. Quite dark to look at makes it interesting to swirl in the glass under some light. Very spicy, both on the nose and tongue. Nutty and hints of caramel. I'll give it a 92 and will be adding more to my collection. Read More
