During our tasting of various sherries last week, it became clear quite quickly that knowledge of other fortified wines would be necessary to identify them promptly in a blind tasting. And so, I created a profile table for fortified wines to help me study. Download file
This table was created with the help of various source. In particular, the official websites of sherry and port. Invaluable was The Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia by Tom Stevenson as was The Oxford Companion To Wine by Jancis Robinson.
While studying for the WSET diploma, my Grape Profile Table proved extremely useful for comparing grapes and learning the specific taste profiles of various grape varieties. I hope this new table will prove to be as beneficial for my current studies.
