Different styles of Sherry with Jeremy Rockett of Gonzalez Byass
This show was published 03 August 2012
Jeremy Rockett of Gonzalez Byass talks us through the process of making different styles of sherry, from Amontillado (an aged Fino) through to dry Oloroso (the nose is sweet, caramel, dried fruit but dry on the palate) and a sweet Oloroso with PX (Pedro Ximenez) added. We finish with an incredibly thick and sweet 100% PX Sherry, perfect poured over ice cream or on its own in place of a pudding. Jeremy offers advice on when to drink and how to keep sherry - the paler the sherry the quicker you should drink it, so treat it the same way as a white wine. The darker the sherry the longer you can keep it after opening the bottle, but reasonably we're talking a month or two rather than years!
