Sherry - Fino
A lighter and drier type of sherry with a pale straw colour – light but still a 'full' wine.  Its bouquet is fresh, delicate and fragrant from the flor (the type of yeast which develops through sherry fermentation), which develops on its surface. This style of Sherry is gaining popularity here as a chilled aperitif wine to serve before dinner or with canapés.

Sherry - Palo Cortado
This is rather a rare style of Sherry that combines the aroma of an amontillado (dry, nutty, full bodied), with the flavour of an oloroso (sweeter, darker, walnuts). In colour it is dark amber or light brown. 

Sherry - Pedro Ximenez (PX)
The best sweet wine used in Jerez - the grapes are picked very ripe and sun-dried and left for up to 20 days before being pressed. Their sugar content is therefore greatly increased and as a result their fermentation is only partial, resulting in a sweet wine of low alcoholic strength. The wine is sweet, dense and dark in colour with a noticeable flavour of raisins. 

Sherry – Manzanilla
Belongs to the Fino group of Sherries, produced in Sanlucar de Barrameda area where the sea air has a decisive effect on the wine, making it even lighter than Jerez Fino and providing it with a delicate and highly individual aroma. It is completely dry and leaves a clean but faintly bitter after-taste on the tongue, without being 'full' like a Jerez Fino. Manzanilla has a very pale straw colour, although with age, it turns the deeper amber of an Amontillado.
