The Masters of wine

I have always loved the Masters golf tournament – such a beautiful, tough course, great players, cheesy american TV coverage, and perfect timing – a great Saturday and Sunday night in with a bottle or two. 

  
And you couldn’t watch golf in better company than these boys – the 34 Palo Cortado and 37 Amontillado from Equipo Navazos.

The 37 is maybe the softer of the two – not quite the bite of the Palo Cortado and a slightly more muted range of flavours and aromas, but still a wonderful example of its kind and has a deep doughy consistency to it that really fills the mouth. 

The 34 is something else – expansive, amazing nose and structure and lightness on the palate. Every kind of flavour you could ask for.  This is the wine that first made me pay proper attention to sherry and still my favourite palo cortado.
