To celebrate International Sherry Week, Lauren Denyer DipWSET takes an in-depth look at the emerging and lesser-known wine styles of Jerez.
Advanced wine tasting
Sherry is famous for its wonderful dry and fortified wine styles – and the region where it is from, Jerez, is steeped in history and tradition. However, is there change on the horizon? With the introduction of new classifications and systems to enable diversification of the offering, what can we expect for the future of sherry? WSET School London's resident sherry expert, Lauren Denyer DipWSET will guide you through the new labelling terms and a tasting of six wines to explore the new and lesser-known styles of sherry, including a wine from neighbouring Montilla-Moriles.
