Sherry – Maligned, Misunderstood, Magnificent
Made in a unique way, matured in cellars dating back to the age of the Conquistadores and bursting with sun-drenched flavours, Sherry has – due to succession of scandals and bad luck in the 1970’s – been maligned and misunderstood.
Now in colourful words and equally evocative pictures, Ben Howkins delves deeps into the fascinating story behind the golden spirit of Jerez and explains why this wine is poised to make a significant comeback. The resurgence of fine sherry is due in part to several young passionate winemakers determined to shape a captivating new future. Readers of this book will discover how complex, fascinating, and rewarding a glass of Sherry can be.
