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.
