Palo cortado Vides


The penultimate wine of our Almacenistas tasting was this Palo Cortado from Jerez de la Frontera, a 15 year old (of which one under flor), 19º palo cortado from a solera of 50 botas.

I clearly remember the spiciness of this one. Looks and smells really enticing: a dark, reddish horsechestnut colour and a nutty, slightly fruity nose. Then on the palate it is a racy style of wine, acid attack, a wider range of flavours, minerals and alcoholic heat and a nice crisp finish.

Not over long or full bodied but a really good example of what palo cortados are all about.
