Emu Sherry - what gives?

DockPotato | Oct 7, 2013 10:13 AM

My wife, and occasionally myself, enjoy a glass of dry sherry. In Toronto we had a decent selection to choose from but since moving to a small town felt lucky to have Alvear's Fino stocked at our local LCBO.

So today, it was with some pleasure that I saw the familiar Emu Fino bottle which we used to buy occasionally. It's decent and considerably less than Alvear's so I decided to get Oz product instead.

Well, it's no longer Sherry. The Australians have abandoned the contolled name and all their Sherry types are now known as "Apera" - a play on apperitif. I'm more than okay with that and applaud the move.

However, on the back, I find, "Contains: Milk, Eggs, Fish..." which set me back.

Surely those ingredients part of a process, a filtering coagulant perhaps? Can someone enlarge on this?
