GB Apostoles Palo 30yo

Palo cortado sherry is a rare variety of sherry that starts its maturation under protective flor, destined to become a fino or amontillado.

But partway through the maturation it loses its veil of flor and begins oxidative ageing as an oloroso sherry would.

This combined maturation results in a wine with some of the richness of oloroso and some of the crispness of amontillado. As we mentioned, it is rare stuff; just 1 to 2% of the grapes pressed for sherry naturally develop into palo cortado.

Well worth a try.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Intense fruit, red grapes, maraschino cherries, prunes and sultanas, backed by a solid caramel wood note.

Palate A lot of depth here, this is a full-flavoured sherry with that same fruit intensity we saw on the nose. Lots of dried fruit with light toffee sweetness and oak caramel.

Finish Sweet, wooded and clear.

Overall A harmonious and exceptionally well-balanced sherry.

Birthday Present
I just bought this for my fiancees 30th birthday. I wanted to get something unique and was looking at 30 year old scotch and whiskey until I found this. We will be spending his 30th birthday at the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin. It was meant to be!
