Palo Cortado Antique

Palo Cortado is a sherry that is initially aged under flor to become a fino or Amontillado, but loses its flor and begins aging oxidatively as an Oloroso. The result expresses some of the richness of Oloroso and the crispness of Amontillado. The wine is fortified to about 20%. This sherry is on average 20 years old.

"The amber-colored NV Antique Palo Cortado has a clean, changing, lifted nose of white chocolate, orange marmalade, almonds and incense, while the balanced palate comes through quite intense, sharp, with good acidity and length. 3,000 bottles were filled. Drink 2013-2019. "
