Meatballs

Sherried tomato sauce

Fry 1 x medium chopped onion in 2 tbs of olive oil.

Add 1 kilo ripe peeled & chopped tomatoes plus 1 x large glass of dry sherry.

Let it reduce.

Add chopped parsley and passata.

Put the meatballs into an oven to table dish, pour over the tomato sauce and then put into the oven or add albondigas to the tomato sauce pan and heat until it bubbles.

Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.

Pairing Oloroso with food

The ideal temperature at which to serve an Oloroso is at between 12 and 14ºC. 

This is the most suitable wine to accompany red meat and game. It combines perfectly with meat stews and casseroles; especially gelatinous meat such as bull's tail or cheeks. The perfect match for wild mushrooms and well cured cheeses.
