Fino Sherry. The hot sunny weather has tempted me into a sneaky early afternoon glass of wine, and there’s only one choice* for this weather: Fino Sherry, straight from the fridge. This one, Tio Pepe, is one of the biggest brands, but it’s actually really good. Fresh, a bit nutty, a bit salty with some subtle spicy undertones, finishing off with a lovely ‘tang’. Available just about everywhere for around £8, but often on promotion.
*Technically not strictly true. Cold Provencal rose would also be quite nice, as would a chilled pale ale or some fizz. But you get the point.
