Fino Sherry

I don't think there's a less appreciated wine than sherry and consequently it's a very under priced wine. I was shopping out of state the other day and the store had a very good selection at low prices so we brought several home. 

The bottle in question here is a Wisdom and Warter Fino Sherry.  Very pale in the glass and an aroma of lightly toasted almonds.  Lots of light almond flavors in the taste along with seawater and salt and yeast.  Light and delicate on the tongue while staying brisk and refreshing.  Nice long finish that leaves the mouth totally dry.  We drank a medium glass while dinner cooked and by the time the meal was ready so was my appetite.  Very good stuff and very under priced.

17% alcohol and $11.
