If I Could Buy Only One – March 20th VINTAGES Release

We asked our writers, “If you could buy only one wine from this release, which one would it be and why?”

John Szabo – And now for something completely different (and delicious): Sánchez Romate Fino Perdido Sherry. My ‘only one’ pick this week is this “lost” (perdido) fino sherry more accurately described as a “fino-amontillado”, about 8 years old on average, and having lost its veil of yeast (flor) for the latter part of the solera ageing process. Complexity is exceptional, while the palate is fully dry, tangy, beguilingly saline and succulent, and saliva-inducing in an extreme way. Glorious value; would be exceptional with your baked or cured ham (jamón Ibérico), or gefilte fish, this upcoming holiday.
