On the basis that the “Customer” is always right and that I am frequently a “Customer”, I reckon I might be occasionally right. As such, this month’s contribution to the Sherry.wine blog is my take on what is going wrong for the wines of Jerez and Sanlucar on wine lists, and what we can maybe do to fix it. There are six points, of which some may be correct.
I have had zero feedback on this other than a like from some of my favourite sommeliers and some pretty surprised comments from the UK. The main issue – that middle aged amontillados, palo cortados and olorosos are the most easily paired wines from the sherry triangle – is surely worth at least thinking about. Anyway, any comments welcome!
