Jersey Boys-Sherry

仅次于意大利和法国,西班牙是世界第三大葡萄酒产国。因为伊比利半岛到处都适合栽种葡萄,因此葡萄栽种面积居世界第一位。至于餐间酒是不限葡萄产地的葡萄酒,或是由不同产地的葡萄酒调配的混合酒。

在西班牙,餐与酒是分不开的,西班牙人也在文化中反映出葡萄酒的重要性。西班牙有句谚语说:品尝葡萄酒如同与上帝对话。对于相信天主的他们来说,无疑是极高的礼赞,而他们互相敬酒的颂语如是说:为爱、为健康、为财富。更忠诚的表达了酒之于这个民族的连结。

雪莉酒Sherry是西班牙的「国酒」,依循欧盟规章,唯有在西班牙生产的才能使用Sherry这个名称。被莎士比亚比喻「裝在瓶子里的西班牙阳光」,雪莉酒是葡萄酒经酒精加强而得的加烈酒,西元十八世纪时西班牙生产的葡萄酒要运送到英国,为保持品质,故增加酒中的糖度和酒精度,雪莉酒因此而生。雪莉酒须在Andalusia省生产,以Jerez黑雷斯最著名,Jerez这个字也可代称雪莉酒,Jerez同时也被称为佛朗明歌之都,时而热情时而低迴的佛朗明歌舞蹈和风貌多变的雪莉酒恰可互相呼应。雪莉酒从轻快到浓重,从不甜到极甜,适合各种场合,也很适合搭配台菜或江浙菜。
