When was the last time you poured fortified wine in the glass? Perhaps it was last week or years ago? Do you remember what it was?
I remember the first time I tried a Fino Sherry from Spain. The aromas of rising sourdough bread and lemon zest fascinated me and still do. There are a number of classic fortified wines from around the world, each with unique aromas and flavours. Fortified wines include sherry, port, madeira, vermouth, and marsala.
I invite you to watch the latest episode of Crush On This and explore the often overlooked category of fortified wines.
