Lustau Palo Cortado Almacenista Sherry
Palo Cortado is about half way between a Fino and an Oloroso - dry and fresh but a hint of nuts and plenty of spice. Not an 'easy' style but a fascinating sipping drink for the open-minded.
Medium amber colour, intense and complex notes of orange peel and dried fruit with hints of salinitiy and rancio from long ageing, so harmonious, elegant and long. A treat!
Matured in American oak in a small solera of 22 butts. Extraordinary stuff, this is intensely dry with plenty of nutty character and a wonderfully creamy texture – should be a great accompaniment to a well-aged cheese or a nice spicy supper.
