"You have been lied to. Somewhere, somehow, you were taught that all Sherry

of the mass-produced California “sherry” on the supermarket shelf." Wine Folly

The Rest of the Sherry Story from Wine Folly:
This dry Amontillado acquires a genuine, rich and nutty flavour through years of ageing.
Amber in colour, with hazelnut aromas on the nose. Light, soft and round on the palate,
with a long aftertaste. Spain.
Secco (Dry): $19.99
