There is no other wine that is as versatile, as utterly unique in its range and production methods--and, unfortunately, as misunde...rstood?as sherry. For centuries, sherry was considered one of the world?s great wines, spoken about in the same reverential terms as the finest Bordeaux and Burgundies. But in the last few decades, sherry lost its way?and cheap, cloyingly sweet blends sullied the reputation of what remains one of Spain?s oldest and greatest winemaking traditions.<br>  <br> Thankfully, sherry is in the midst of a renaissance. Beloved of sommeliers and bartenders in the craft cocktail community, today sherry is being re-discovered and re-appreciated as an incredible table wine <i>and </i>essential component of many classic cocktails.<br>  <br> <i>Sherry </i>is essential reading for wine or spirits professionals looking to incorporate this complex wine into their menu, and for adventurous drink enthusiasts who are on the hunt for something unexpected. With a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the different styles of sherry, how they are made, and the people and places that produce it, <i>Sherry </i>demystifies what can be a confusing (and seemingly contradictory) wine. <br><br>A thorough buyer?s guide lists top producers and profiles the very best bodegas and wines. And a whole chapter on sherry-based cocktails illuminates a completely different side of sherry, featuring classic recipes like the Tuxedo and Sherry Cobbler, as well as modern creations from the country?s top bartenders (Jim Meehan?s East India Negroni, Derek Brown?s Kojo Cocktail). More than a dozen recipes for tapas and other delicious foods?best eaten alongside a glass of sherry, of course?round out this wonderfully eclectic, engaging, and inspiring collection. read more

Wine Enthusiast rating: 95. In 1994, desire to produce an ice wine, or Eiswein, as it is called in Germany, prompted us to adopt a...n innovative program whereby Scheurebe grapes would be picked late in season and then commercially frozen, thus concentrating their already-high sugar levels. We called wine Eisrebe. Although German Eisweins are produced from fruit that is actually picked frozen from vine, we found that by freezing grapes ourselves we could fashion a delicious dessert wine that is viscous and smooth, with excellent acidity to balance sweetness. 2009 Scheurebe has delicate aromas of apricot, citrus blossom, honey, and creme caramel followed by a rich and unctuous texture integrated with well balanced, bright acidity and a persistent finish.
