Get in the spirit of the season with a glass of Dorado!
Yeah, how many times have you had a glass of Dorado?
Probably more times than you think. In fact, if you are part of the "Sherry Vanguard" you may be drinking Dorado every other night but you just don't know.
Let me show you something, mate.
Wait a second. Those labels say Jerez Pálido?
Damn Right! Ain't that groovy enough for you?
Also, that label on the bottom right looks a little suspicious. Did you just called me "DUDE"? Where are the Veuve Cliquot offices located?
Bad jokes aside, all I'm trying to say is that if you had some Dorado before, you also had some Pálido. Let me explain that better.
Pálido translates to "Pale", and according to our antique sources, it's the old name for fino in Jerez. Dorado, on the other hand, translates to "Golden" and it's also how the Jerezanos used to call their Amontillado's back in the good old days. So all Dorado's (*except Moscatel Dorado, of course!) were Pálido's once in their lifetime. Are you following me?
Now, check out these two cuties.
Excusez-moi, a Pálido and a Dorado from Jerez? You bet, mate!
Now, take all those words above and throw them out of the window. Wait a second, you are also welcome to keep them if you find them useful.
"Why doesn't José imports Sherry anymore?" A NY wine Personage asked a NY wine Schnook some years ago.
Well, let me tell you something, José is a horrible business man. You know, when something becomes fashionable and in demand he just walks away and forgets to cash out.
Ladies and Gentleman, our sincerest apologies for being absent from "the game" all these years.
Please let our man Mr. Barnes introduces you to the rare beauties of Gomez Nevado. Apparently, it's never too late to save for retirement.
