Also called Jerez, this fortified wine is made from white grapes that grow near Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Sherry styles range from light versions similar to white table wines, such as Manzanilla and Fino, to darker and heavier versions that have been allowed to oxidise as they age in barrel, such as Amontillado and Oloroso, giving them a darker color. Sherry can be and is produced outside of Spain, however in some places, like the EU, the nomenclature is protected; and must come from the 'Sherry Triangle' along Spain's SW coast.
