  1. Manzanilla Barbadillo

    Barbadillo Manzanilla Sherry

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Does anything recycle its own refuse quite as romantically as wine does? Crusted Port springs to mind, as does Muscadet Sur Lie, but Manzanilla Sherry takes the slightly salty biscuit.

    As it ages in oak, its light and tangy character is protected from oxidation by the natural formation of a layer of yeast called flor, which seals the surface of the wine and feeds on its compounds and alcohol.

    Oak ageing enables water to evaporate through the wood, maintaining the wine's alcoholic percentage, as well as its delicate body, tanginess and tapas-friendly salty tinge. Bloomin' 'eck, who'd have thought of that? That's what we call flor-ed genius!

    £6.25

    £6.25

    We have some riddles for you.

    "Voiceless it cries, wingless flutters; toothless it bites, mouthless mutters." What is it? The wind.

    "It's salty but pleasant, dry but refreshing, small but mighty." What is it? Solear Manzanilla by Antonio Barbadillo of course!

    Yes, don't be fooled by its size, there is a whole lotta dry, nutty, sea-salty goodness in this wee bottle. One to watch Almovodar films and pick at olives with.

  3. Gonzalez Byass Elegante Fino Dry Sherry

    Gonzalez Byass Elegante Fino Dry Sherry

    £6.99

    £6.99

    For a desperately long time Sherry has been the kid sitting alone in the canteen, pairing his corn beef sarnies with a good root up his nose, radiating a forcefield of uncool. Thanks Nan, you ruined Sherry for the rest of us! Or did she? Over the summer that kid has grown 12 inches, had his braces off and his voice has got deep and sexy. Go on son! Sherry's back, rolling out of cocktail and tapas bars alike; be sure that the cool kids are sipping on a chilled Fino... as well as your awesome Nanna. Good lord, drinking fortified wine's a rollercoaster.

  4. Gonzalez Byass Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce Sherry

    Gonzalez Byass Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce Sherry

    £13.75

    £13.75

    'I'm rich. Rich rich rich,' sung Karen O in The Yeah Yeah Yeah's track 'Rich', from their brilliant 2003 debut album, Fever to Tell. But was Karen sanguinely singing about her financial status, or had she penned lyrics from the perspective of the Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce?

    We'll leave that question to you, but what we will say is she must have had a very enjoyable time writing the song, because the Solera 1847 is awash with flavours of raisins, vanilla and salty caramel. Let's just hope she had some good cheese, for Pete's sake.

    Often sequels are never quite as good as the original. Like Ocean's 12; Julia Roberts playing Tess Ocean, pretends to be Julia Roberts but she's foiled by Bruce Willis playing Bruce Willis? Seriously, what on God's green earth was that? We could name another 248 million bad sequels but who has the time. Thankfully, there are exceptions, like the greatest movie of all time... Weekend at Bernie's 2. Just kidding we were thinking of Godfather 2, Dos Palmas is another example of an unbelievable follow up. The 2nd in the Palmas range, it has been aged under flor for 8 years. Moving into a Fino/Amontillado style this is much more intense and much more concentrated than the Una Palma. The wine still has Fino characters of green olives, butterscotch and salted dough but has begun developing oxidative characters of caramel and Christmas cake. Las Palmas Strikes Back!

    "Una, Dos, Tres, Cuatro. Hello, hello (hola!) we're drinking Tio Pepe las Palmas!" That's definitely a better version than U2's. Vertigo is not a place Bono, it's a concept! Our version is not only better because of strict adherence to the literal and a total disregard for rhyme schemes; most importantly it celebrates the las Palmas range by Gonzalez Byass. 4 sherries labelled Una to Cuatro shows the unfiltered progression of Fino to Amontillado. Una Palma is the youngest of the range; a Fino Sherry that has spent an average of 6 years in cask. The wine has intense aromas of sour dough, salted almonds and green apple. It's a must try for dry Sherry lovers, in many ways it embodies the immortal U2 lyrics, "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!"

  7. Williams and Humbert Alegria Manzanilla NV

    Williams and Humbert Alegria Manzanilla Sherry NV

    £5.50

    £5.50

    ***2013 IWC Gold, 2013 IWC Trophy, 2013 IWSC Silver, 2013 Decanter Bronze***

    Paola Medina Sheldon. The name might not sit at the front of your mind, although we're not sure if she's ever surfaced from her studies long enough to introduce herself.

    She's the Head Winemaker at Williams and Humbert, a post she took up after obtaining separate degrees in Chemistry and Oenology, and Masters' degrees in Viticulture, Oenology and Legislation. Blimey, our Woodwork 'O' Level certificate can come off the wall now!

    We think she's just about qualified to make this elegant, nutty and salt-tinged Manzanilla. And she'd more than likely be able to take you to the cleaners if you disagreed.
