Appetising Apera

919 Wines Pale Dry Apera NV, Riverland, AUD $32 (500ml)

This is a flor fino sherry by another name. With a light to medium yellow colour, it has a tangy, seaspray-like bouquet that’s intentionally aldehydic and typifies the style. Very dry and tangy in the mouth, it’s intense but light, refreshing and very appetite stimulating. (Screwcap)
