Gonzalez Byass, Apostoles 30 Year Old Palo Cortado, Jerez, Spain
(at London SE1, 27 Sep 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2025
Palo cortado is a rare style of dry Sherry that starts its life ageing under flor like a fino, before being aged oxidatively like an oloroso. It's a real treat, and incredible value for money given that it has spent a minimum of 30 years ageing in cask. It's dark amber in colour, tangy and raisined, with warmth and nuttiness. Savour it on its own, or serve with nuts and hard cheese.
