A GUIDE TO BUY­ING

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - WINE -

Sherry is amaz­ingly af­ford­able with a de­cent bot­tle start­ing as low as €5 (US$5.8). At the other end of the spec­trum there are spe­cial lim­ited edi­tions. Look out for a bot­tle of Pio X 1903 from Tio Pepe, made in hon­our of the Pope at that time: 120 bot­tles were found in a hid­den cel­lar in 2017, but only 100 were put on the mar­ket at €1,300 (US$1,523) per bot­tle. As the lim­ited pro­duc­tions be­come harder to find, their value is sure to in­crease. At the top end of the spec­trum are the Ver­sos 1891, a rare blend of 125-year-old Amon­til­lado sherry, which comes from the per­sonal col­lec­tion of the Bar­badillo fam­ily. It has a very in­tense flavour, with prices up to €12,000 (US$14,060) per bot­tle.
