A species of wine, so called from Xeres in Spain, where it is made. The highest class of the many varieties are those that are technically called "dry," that is, free from sweetness, such as the Amontillado, Montilla, Manzanilla, etc. It is much used in this country, and when pure it agrees well with most constitutions. Genuine and unadulterated sherry, however, brings a very high price, and is rarely to be had, inferior wines being extensively sold under this name.
