Dry and very complex, Palo Cortado is the most revered Sherry style partly because the yeast effect that produces it happens only by 'accident', causing premature oxidation. The result is fresh and dry but hugely layered with nutty, salty and dried fruit notes. This example is extra rare because sourced from a specific bodega and bottled by Lustau. A very cheap price for one of the world's most complex wine experiences.

Overview

Its Origins

Since 1981 Lustau has selected small quantities of the finest quality sherries which have been matured by small independent producers, better known as “almacenistas”. Palo Cortado is the most appreciated Sherry style, very complex. Dark amber in colour, with tobacco and leather aromas in the nose, this wine is intense, reminiscent of roasting coffee beans, spices and dark chocolate. Dry and very concentrated, this wine has a long and elegant finish.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Wine Advocate, Luis Gutierrez

"The NV Almacenista Vides Palo Cortado is from Jerez, the warmer and drier city, has a light- to medium-amber color and a pretty nose of hazelnuts, dehydrated apricots and a lactic note. The medium-bodied palate has a distinct dry note of hazelnut skin, good persistence and length. Drink 2013-2017."
