A pale, very dry Spanish sherry.
- On the bar blackboard were fino, manzanilla, oloroso… excellent.
- Try manzanilla or fino with fish, dry oloroso and amontillado with cheese, ham and game, and sweet oloroso and Pedro Ximenez with sweets and fruit.
- Fino and manzanilla are the most fragile of the sherries, but if you keep them refrigerated, they should be fine for cooking for a couple of weeks.
Spanish, literally 'camomile' (because the flavour is reminiscent of that of camomile tea).
