What Is a Good Brand of Sherry?

La Guita Manzanilla is an excellent sherry, according to the Miami Herald. Other top-rated sherries include El Maestro Sierra Fino, Hidalgo-La Gitana Amontillado and Gutierrez Colosia Sangre y Trabajadero Coloroso.

There are six categories of sherry, according to Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Fino, which is acidic and dry, pairs well with salty foods. Manzanilla, like Fino, is very light and dry. Amontillado is slightly darker and has a nutty flavor that pairs well with pork, rabbit and pheasant.

Oloroso Sherry has a complex flavor profile and is often barrel-aged for decades. Some olorosos are crisp and dry, while others are extremely sweet. Palo cortado sherry is also assertive and sophisticated. Cream sherry is dark, thick and extremely sweet.
