Palo cortado (the name means"broken stick," a reference to the symbol chalked on the barrel) is a sherry that starts out as a fino and ends up an Amontillado. This wine, which despite being labeled "30 Years" is actually 72 years old. Between the shift from fino to Amontillado and the extraordinary degree of aging this wine has an off-the-charts complexity. Bone dry, earthy, and yet still fresh, this has an endless finish. Extraordinary with aged manchego

Grandpa of Sherry. Only 30yr old grapes allowed and each batch needs to be carbon dated. This batch is now 52 yrs old. Smooth, velvety, showing its complex age with the wood
