This is a "wow" Sherry. A fantastic juxtaposition of delicacy and energy. The acidity is the unifying element that brings together the briny, nutty & fruity elements which permeate the nose and palate alike. The body is ethereal & as it breathes the richness of the hazelnut & apricot notes pick up, again creating a captivating tension for a the senses. There is a mystery to this as it shows an unrelenting smoky/caramel note on the back of the palate which lingers beautifully on the finish. This is a fully realized, authentic wine of composure. Get ahold of some.

Not my favourite Palo Cortado, very rich, but still lots of dried fruit complexity.

Well this is awesome dry sherry with density, weight and length. Toasted nuts, caramel and white pepper on the nose. Bone dry.
