Description

Winner of Best in Show at Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 - one of only 50 wines to achieve this award out of 16,903 wines from around the world! Almacenistas are independent sherry artisans who have historically been producing and ageing small stocks of Sherry. The Solera of this Palo Cortado comprises only 22 casks and it’s aged in the winery that Cayetano del Pino owns in Jerez de la Frontera.
Palo Cortado’s are the mistake of the sherry world. They start off life as a Fino, but inexplicably the flor dies and it begins to age oxidatively like an Oloroso. It is said no one really knows why this happens, but it gives a fantastic result, the weight and salinity of a Fino, with nutty aged complexity.

Smells

Delicate and bright with almond and dried fruits

Tastes

This Lustau Palo Cortado is full of dried fruits and dates, roasted nuts, hints of tobacco, fine minerality and a pinch of salt. Aromatic, beautifully dry and intense. Perfect with wafer thin slices of Jamon Iberico
