Needle-type white tea infused for 30 minutes in cool water, room-temperature Fino and classic pure-apple Belyovskaya pastila (apple paste layered pie). All parts of this set combine well with one another in pairs — including the pair of cool white tea and non-refrigerated Sherry. But all together they create a perfect and self-sufficient composition, where, speaking poetically, all autumn themes are played upon: cool freshness, muted fruitiness, soft fading and enlightened quietude. Such a composition can work as a аpéritif as well as a digestif or a separate service for an arty show-off. We want to stress once again that the wine does not need to be refrigerated in this case, and that it is best to use Fino en Rama, Manzanilla will also do very nicely, of course.
