Half Bottles Of Wine

A palo cortado sherry, a rare variety of sherry that is initially aged under flor to become a fino or amontillado, but inexplicably loses its veil of flor and begins aging oxidatively as an oloroso. The result is a wine with some of the richness of oloroso and some of the crispness of amontillado. Only about 1-2% of the grapes pressed for sherry naturally develop into palo cortado.

Amber colour.

A fruity intensity, mellowed by old oak wood. Well-balanced.

Deep, full and harmonious. Aromas of old oak and caramel.

Average age of these rare Old Solera sherries is aproximately 30 years, 20 aged as vintage sherry and 10 in the "solera" system. All the grapes are from vineyards owned by Gonzalez Byass in the "Jerez Superior" area.

Serve fresh but not cold, optimum temperature:; 16 degrees C.

Serve in the traditional sherry glass to half capacity, to fully appreciate its superb fragance and intense bouquet acquired in the silence and shade of our cellars, throughout the long years.

Specially indicated as accompaniment to a good Iberian ham, cheese, almonds, olives, etc.It is the ideal midmorning aperitif.

It is also excellent with dry fruits or cookies.
