  • The Infinite Ideas interview with Julian Jeffs | Infinite Ideas
    which technology has operated to the detriment of the wines save perhaps for the fact that it enables the shippers to pander to the taste for light coloured and limpid wines with too much taken out of them leading to a diminution of flavour and character But that seems to be the public taste Sherry is often regarded as an old fashioned tipple how would you convince today s drinkers that it s worth trying By giving them a glass or two to drink and telling them what to look for I have given tutored tastings for sixth formers at schools and undergraduates at university who have been amazed and delighted when shown what good sherry really tastes like The lesson that it tastes good with food is also being learned and shown by the success of tapas bars The intelligent young can enjoy classical wines just as they can classical music Sherry tasting is quite a specialised skill How did you get into it were you a natural or did you have to learn Some people have more sensitive palates and noses and better memories for flavours than others Those who are favoured in this way make the best tasters and there are a very few who do not seem to have these gifts at all so almost anyone can enjoy the subtleties and beauties of wine It does not come naturally though and has to be taught by suggesting to a young taster the things he or she should look for and to identify the differences between the various wines I was fortunate in having a father who was a knowledgeable wine lover and who gave me my first lessons Like most teenagers I was something of a rebel and saw there were two alternatives I could reject wine but that did not happen because I soon liked it enormously or I had to learn more about it than my father I chose the latter course to his amusement and gratification Can you tell us about the worst sherry drink you have ever tasted In 1956 I was crossing the Channel in a French ferry Before lunch I went to the bar and optimistically asked for a glass of sherry The barman told me he only had French sherry so I ordered a glass I have no idea what it was but it was memorably horrible About twenty years later I was on holiday in Italy and saw a bottle of an excellent fino behind the bar The colour looked wrong but I ordered a glass out of curiosity I gathered it had been there open for two or three years and it had become brown My curiosity was satisfied but again it was horrible Who is the greatest character you have met during your long career as a sherry expert Can you tell us about him her The Sherry country has always been full of characters and happily they still abound I have met enough to fill

  • 10 things you might not know about sherry | Infinite Ideas
    perfect accompaniment to the Spanish meal The wine was considered to be Shakespeare s favourite drink Perhaps a swig of amontillado will have you composing sonnets too Legally only sherry produced within the triangle is allowed to be called sherry However it is produced in America and must be sold with the label California Sherry or American Sherry so that consumers know the difference This is due to a Spanish law that was created in 1933 to protect the term sherry and make it exclusively Spanish Christopher Columbus is thought to have stocked up his ship with many barrels of sherry before departing Spain for the New World which if true makes it the first wine to make it to America No wonder there is a growing popularity for it Given that sherry is not as popular as other wines it is often cheaper to buy and therefore you re likely to get your hands on a quality bottle for a relatively low price It can be split into different categories depending on their colour oxidisation and blending Rather than putting the cork back in the bottle and leaving it on your shelf for another year sherry should ideally be treated like a white wine and consumed within a few days of opening otherwise the wine becomes too exposed to oxygen and loses its flavour Search Recent posts Alice in strategy land by Kate M Santon can help improve your business Career lessons from The Walking Dead be adaptable The pros and cons of self publishing your business book Zombie identification for beginners What would Rick do Ten career boosting tips from The Walking Dead Blog Post Categories 100 Management Models 15 5742 Days 6 Authentic leadership 10 Basil Bunting and A strong song tows us 8 Book publishing 51

  • Great sherry tasting 2014 | Infinite Ideas
    it is being poured into the glass sometimes even from the next room The nose is a major organ of tasting receiving the first sensations For this to happen the wine needs room for the volatile compounds to collect and concentrate above its surface contained in the space defined by the glass which should therefore taper in towards the top and be big enough for the wine only to occupy about a third of it The little thimbles sold as sherry glasses with the wine filled to the brim do not give it a chance Apart from the bouquet ascending to the nose the colour and viscosity can be appreciated These features reveal the character of the wine and lay the foundations for the pleasure it can give in the mouth There is a difference between aroma and bouquet The aroma is the smell of a young wine while the bouquet develops with age as the wine matures giving a complexity that can be immense subtle and complex Chin chin Follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with Infinite Ideas and get more tips like this as we get closer to the release date of Sherry Search Recent posts Alice in strategy land by Kate M Santon can help improve your business Career lessons from The Walking Dead be adaptable The pros and cons of self publishing your business book Zombie identification for beginners What would Rick do Ten career boosting tips from The Walking Dead Blog Post Categories 100 Management Models 15 5742 Days 6 Authentic leadership 10 Basil Bunting and A strong song tows us 8 Book publishing 51 Business and finance 128 Classic Wine Library 8 Codebreaking our future 6 Current events 37 Entertainment 39 Football Business 9 Game of Thrones on Business 22 Implementing
