Apostoles Palo Cortado 30yo 37.5clRegular price £29.95
Palo cortado is a special type of sherry that starts its life and maturation under protective flor, destined to become a fino or amontillado.
Partway through the maturation it loses its veil of flor and begins oxidative ageing as an oloroso sherry would.
This combined maturation results in a wine with some of the richness of oloroso and some of the freshness of amontillado. It is a rare beverage though as just 1 to 2% of the grapes pressed for sherry naturally develop into palo cortado.
A very full-flavoured sherry with fruit intensity and concentration on the nose and palate. Lots of dried fruit with light toffee sweetness and oak caramel. Delicious!
Grapes: Palomino and Pedro Ximenez
