Aldi Exquisite Collection Fino Sherry
If you’re a fino fan you’ll love this classic super-dry, tangy sherry - one of three incredibly well-priced sherries Aldi has released in its Exquisite Collection range at just £5.99 for 50cl. (The others are an amontillado and a cream sherry - both good too but slightly sweeter than the classic Spanish style)
Apparently they’re a seasonal line so won’t be a permanent fixture* although I guess they’re just putting a toe in the water to see how they’ll go. Majestic interestingly has been reporting a big increase in sherry sales this year.
The advantage of the fino being a limited edition is that it is still super-fresh - and should be kept so. Pop it into the fridge and drink it up within the week - which shouldn’t be hard! And pair it with some good iberico ham.
