┬íHola! I have returned from a holiday in Spain with many tales of sherry drinking. Actually, if I'm being honest, I have no tales of sherry drinking, as we did not imbibe any. However, the local wine to Córdoba is D.O. Montilla-Moriles, and is very dry indeed, though not fortified like sherry. It was rather nice, the glass of it we tried in the Taberna Salinas, from the friendly waiter, as well as the glass in the Bodega Guzmán, poured from a barrel behind the bar.

The other thing that we tried -- not consciously, but in two places (the above-mentioned Salinas, as well as the Taberna Campos) it was FOISTED upon us -- was a very sweet, viscous, dessert wine, which I suspect was the Moscatel, as it was almost raisin-flavoured. On the plus side, it was on the house. The one in Campos was superior (less sticky), but either way I'm not sure I'd have consciously ordered it.
