depends upon the Sherry. fino Sherry is nothing like port in flavor!
If you were cooking it, I'd say use flat Dr. Pepper. Flavor profile is very similar... but not sure how it would do in trifle!
Is your vermouth dry (white) or sweet (Red)? If sweet, I'd use that.
The port may work, but will result in a very different flavor profile.
but it might even taste better!
