In 1905 the Dry Sack brand was launched by Alexander Williams and Arthur Humbert in Jerez, Spain. It is a unique blend of Oloroso (which gives full body and rich aromas), Amontillado (giving dryness) and Pedro Ximenez (giving softness and deep coloring). The result is a medium-dry style, with an attractive nuttiness on both the nose and palate - it is deeply fragrant with a unique lingering finish. In Spain, a glass of chilled sherry remains a popular aperitif because it is the least likely to interfere with what follows. It is also wonderful after-dinner, on the rocks, or neat, served with nuts and cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Dry Sack Medium is produced with Palomino and some Pedro Ximénez grapes, but with care not to mark the wine with a lot of PX character. It's bottled with an average age of seven years and 29 grams of residual sugar. This is one of the better-known brands, and it has an Oloroso character but it's still quite elegant, not too sweet, with just a touch that would make it quite approachable as an aperitif, with cheese and even as part of cocktails.
