Apostoles Palo Cortado Viejo Sherry.

From Gonzales Byass comes this very special wine, and one which is remarkably good value. An amazingly concentrated and intense Palo Cortado that has benefited from more than 30 years of ageing. This is a wine that demands contemplation and would be best served on its own or with very simple food.

Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 06/09. Flavours of caramel, chestnuts and chocolate lend this sweetness, modified by a subtle brininess that keeps it in balance. This is a friendly Palo Cortado to enjoy at the end of a meal with dried fruits and nuts.

The firm of Gonzalez Byass has been producing high quality sherry for 175 years and, although widely known for their Tio Pepe dry fino, they have a renown for their range of 'almencenista' sherries of which this Palo Cortado is a shinning example of how good sherry can get. The Solera for this wine was created in 1862 in memory of the visit of Queen Isabella to the vineyards and the wine is of a minimum of 30 years of age. Palo Cortado is an exciting form of sherry that starts its life as a fino but suddenly turns itself into an Oloroso. The name means 'cut stick' and comes from the habit of the sherry winemakers of marking the barrels that declare themselves as this style with a stroke through the line that usually defines it as Fino.

You can taste the age of this sherry. Not an aperitif great with or after food. Had dinner, watched a cookery program and finished the bottle. So complex I could almost taste every dish.

Great value for money @50p a year
