As per previous threads I’ve amassed a small stash of sherry (and port) for drinking over the festive period. One of the joys of wine appreciation I find is the ability to compare and contrast wines over a period of time. I’m likely to have quite a few bottles open at the same time, and am not going to be able to store them in the fridge, so they are going to have to go back to my passive “cellar”, which is at about 11-15C floor to head height at the moment. The bottles are mostly Palo Cortado and Oloroso, the odd Amontillado (not Fino or Manzanilla) plus Tawny and Single Quinta Port. I suspect I will be ok to have most of them open for a few weeks or even a month or two without too much serious degradation, but thought I’d get opinions of the forum. I suspect the single Quinta Ports will be the most fragile, so may desist opening them. It’s really the comparison between the better sherries and maybe Lustau 2000 vs 10/20 yo Tawnies that piques my interest. Many thanks in advance.
