Light amber in colour. This exceptional sherry brings together the finesse and delicacy of an Amontillado with the richness and body of an Oloroso. A rare style of sherry, it is dry with rich, concentrated flavours, reminiscent of spices and dark chocolate.Serve between 14-15ºC in a white wine glass with olives, nuts, cheese or "serrano ham. This wine can accompany consommes, game soups, cold and smoked meats, foie-gras and many spicy Asian dishes.

"A fabulous Sherry at an incredible price! Palo Cortado combines the best qualities of amontillado (dry, delicate, walnut skins, hints of flor) and oloroso (caramelly, rich, dried figs, more oxidised) in an intense, complex whole. This is beautifully concentrated with nutty, spiced fruitcake density and a long milk chocolate finish. Stock up for Christmas and serve slightly chilled as an aperitif or with cheese." 93 points, Decanter Magazine
