Marques de Rodil Palo Cortado

75 cl

Palo Cortado is a big favourite with sherry fans & this is one of the best! Mahogany colour, almond like aroma, dry, balanced, full-bodied with lots of fruit, nuts & spice. Persistant finish. 

 

Palo Cortado - is a variety of sherry that is initially made like an amontillado, typically for 3-4 years but which subsequently develops a character closer to an oloroso. This happens by accident when the flor dies. 

 

Delicious, refined and sexy, but that’s assuming you like palo cortado. Hidalgo’s version is alluring and full of caramel, salt and hazelnut; it has an excellent feel, sensational acidity and a long, long finish of salted cashews and bitter spice. Elegant, balanced and structured; it’s what Sherry lovers want from an elevated bottling.' Wine Enthusiast 91 Points

 

Amber color. The flor-induced aromas of apple and iodine are pungent, followed by a round palate with a touch of caramel. It's all balanced and long, with a nutty finish.' Wine Spectator 91 Points.
