WINE

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE - ANDY CRONSHAW

OF all the world’s great wines per­haps the most ne­glected, mis­un­der­stood and abused is sherry.

If you are in­trigued but not sold on sherry or are sim­ply open­minded, this week is your op­por­tu­nity.

Yes it’s In­ter­na­tional Sherry Week with events tak­ing place across Manch­ester city cen­tre and be­yond to cel­e­brate this unique wine.

The beauty of the dry styles of sherry is that they con­tain no su­gar what­so­ever so they are com­par­a­tively less calorific than ta­ble wine, bear­ing in mind that may con­tain much more al­co­hol; up to 20 per cent.

Sherry is made from Palomino grapes grown
