Wine of the week: Booths Manzanilla sherry
Chilled Manzanilla sherry is one of my favourite drinks at this time of year so I was impressed to come across this great value, full-size bottle at the Booths Christmas in July* tasting last week.
It's apparently made for them by Williams & Humbert and recently won the Manzanilla trophy at the International Wine Challenge. I also like the packaging - as you can see it comes in a lightly tinted glass bottle with a modern design. Best of all it’s only £7.75 which is an absolute steal.
If you don’t have a branch of Booths nearby, which you won’t if you live in the south of England, you can order it on Amazon Fresh where they confusingly list it as 'dry sherry red wine'. And that too is is only available in selected locations throughout the UK but if you can get hold of a bottle I certainly would.
What to pair with it? Well, almost any kind of seafood - a selection of fishy tapas would be perfect. You can see a full list of suggestions by clicking on the link below or a wider one in my ebook 101 Great Ways to Enjoy Sherry.
*No, I don’t want to think about it either but all the retailers showcase their ranges around now.
