As an Australian we should feel
When it came to choosing a cask I decided to skip the wines and head to the fortifieds - in this case, Sherry. Regardless of how good the Sherry is, you certainly don't want to be seen leaving a bottle shop with a 2 litre box of sherry in your hand.
Details: Seppelt Cream Sherry
Australian Sherry is remarkably good - though soon we won't be able to use the words Sherry, Fino, Oloroso and Amontillado due to an EU trade agreement.
In the glass it has a wonderful golden hue and an appealing aroma. Not overly sweet, it's rich but not cloying - well-balanced with just the right amount of acid to make it refreshing. Serve chilled it's perfect for pre- and post- dinner sipping.
When you think of it, the cask makes sense. It's not like you drink whole bottles of Sherry at one sitting - this way it stays at it's best, from the first glass to the last.
