Forget the grannies, drink sherry

Poor sherry – It’s had a bad time really. Generations of drinkers, including myself have mistakenly dismissed sherry as dry, spirity and wholly unpleasant or as a sickly sweet Granny’s drink. But a sherry revolution is upon us. Haven’t you noticed them creeping into the Aperitif and Fortified Wine sections on the wine list in your favourite restaurant? Don’t be afraid. Try some. Some sherries are light and dry, but others are surprisingly rich, raisiny, and unctuous and on the whole, they are fantastically diverse.
