It's a wine that can be also serve as an apertif. A fortified spanish wine from the Jerez region of southern Spain, wine ranging from very dry to sweet and from amber to brown.=It is also used as an ingredient to many foods.==there are types of sherry: Fino is a pale straw and gold color, with a delicate crisp aroma (nutty). It is ideal with tapas, soups, seafood, fish, ham and mild cheese. Manzanilla: Straw colored, has a crisp aroma, and it is dry and light. It is excellent with tapas, seafood, mild cheese, white fish and ham. It must be served chilled. Cream Sherry is an Oloroso sweetened with rich Pedro Ximenez grapes. Its color is dark or very dark mahogany. Its aroma is round, crisp and velvety. An ideal dessert sherry. Oloroso is initially dry, amber to mahogany in color with a strongly fragrant aroma. Full bodied (nutty). Very good before meals and with game and red meats. Pale Cream is a smooth wine of pale or very pale color, with a Fino crisp aroma and a sweet taste. It is excellent to accompany foie-gras and fresh fruit salad. Cream sherries are generally sweetened Amontillado or Oloroso and combine a deep mahogany-color with an intense aroma. Sweet and velvety, with full body. Amontillado is amber in color, naturally dry but with a deep fresh nutty aroma. Smooth and full bodied. A wonderful aperitif and a good match for white meats, oily fish and mature cheese. Palo Cortado is a hybrid of Fino and Oloroso as the yeast is allowed to develop and then die off. This produces a bright mahogany-colored wine with a hazelnut bouquet and a dry palate. Medium is an amber to mahogany colored wine with a delicate bouquet and slightly sweet. It's basically a sweetened Oloroso and also called brown, golden milk or rich Sherry. Pedro Jimenez is made from one of the other types of Sherry grape. It is normally used to color and sweeten other sherries, but is also drunk on its own. Very sweet. Moscatel or Moscat is a dark mahogany-colored wine, produced from the other grape variety used in Sherry. It is normally used to sweeten other sherries, and is a smooth, sweet wine with an aroma or raisins. Smooth texture but very sweet.=
