Among the many activities that were part of International Sherry Week, a group of Sherry Explorers attended a tasting of sherry wines, from the Faustino González winery, paired with some Japanese delicacies.   The tasting was organized by Momoko Izumi, expert venenciadora, sherry wine lover, and... a Sherry Explorer!

Momoko, cual ratoncito de bodega, nos recibió con una copa de fino en rama Cruz Vieja.

Momoko, just like a sherry bodega mouse, greeted us with a glass of Cruz Vieja right out of the barrel.

Ollú es la preciosa caja japonesa en la que venían las tapas japonesas.  Antes nos sirvieron una sopa de Miso que estaba riquísima, creo que es la mejor que he probado en mi vida.  Como veis el menú era muy completo e incluía instrucciones de cómo usar los palillos y un mini glosario de palabras japonesas.

The Ollú is the beautiful box in which the Japanese tapas were served.    Before that, we were served a Miso soup which was excellent, I think it is the best that I have ever tasted.  As you can see the menu included the tapas, and it also included instructions on how to use chopsticks, and a mini-glossary of Japanese words.

El maridaje fue perfecto.  Íbamos tomando un sorbito del vino que tocaba y saboreándolo con un bocadito de la tapa que le correspondía.  Vinos espectaculares + tapas sabrosas, diferentes, suaves, intensas = Indescriptible. ¡Oishii!

The pairing was perfect.  We would have a sip of the wine that was chosen, while savoring a bite of the tapa that accompanied it.   Spectacular wines + tasty, different, palatable, intense, tapas = Indescribable.  Oishii!
