A fringe benefit of having this blog is that good friends sometimes offload their unwanted sherries in my direction and this here is the product of just such an act of charity/disposal.
I certainly won’t be giving it away – it is a lovely wine. Bottled in July 2015 this was once a famous old Domecq solera – now, I believe, under the Harveys label – and it has a bit of class about it. Also has a lot of macharnudo in it unless I am mistaken. Smooth and not excessive in any direction but aromatic on the nose and full in flavour with almonds, yeast, spices and salty mineral heat.
Very nice indeed. Bring out your unwanted sherries people!
