One of my personal favourite wines from the WSET 3 course, a medium sherry. Sherries are amazingly unique and complex wines with a production process involving aging under living yeast and multi-barrel, multi-year blending. When studying them I couldn't help but think it was like something out of a fantasy novel. The term medium indicates that this is a wine with a noticeable sweetness, but not a true dessert wine. I think a glass of this would pair very nicely after dinner with a butter tart and a crackling fire.
Raisin, fig, cedar, vanilla, hazelnut.
