Half blind sherry tasting

16 October 2018 , 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM  | New York

The next Half Blind Tasting will feature a selection of the world's finest Sherry in different styles. Can you tell a Fino from a Manzanilla? A Palo Cortado from an Amontillado? These style and more in their very best representations will be featured in this continuation of our Half Blind tasting series. Producers include Valdespino, Osborne, Lustau, Hidalgo and more, and includes Sherries aged up to 30 years. I promise that if you don't know these classic wines before the tasting, you will be very glad to discover them. A series of MW-style questions will be distributed with the wines, and participants are encouraged to write their answers as they would for an exam.

As with our earlier tastings, this event is not limited to Masters of Wine or MW students: it is open to anyone who would like to taste through the wines, and completion of the questions is not mandatory.

We will taste six wines in an hour. Our panel will consist of Charles Curtis MW, Roger Bohmrich MW, and Roger Dagorn MS. We find that the combination of the MW and MS approaches provides an interesting mix of ideas that will hopefully help everyone to understand both the wines and the process of blind tasting more thoroughly. The tasting will be strictly limited to 20 tasters and tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
