Apostoles Palo Cortado

Apostoles Palo Cortado
A palo cortado sherry, a rare variety of sherry that is initially aged under flor to become a fino or amontillado, but inexplicably loses its veil of flor and begins aging oxidatively as an oloroso. The result is a wine with some of the richness of oloroso and some of the crispness of amontillado. Only about 1-2% of the grapes pressed for sherry naturally develop into palo cortado.

A sweet sherry of amber colour. A fruity intensity, mellowed by old oak wood. Well-balanced. Deep, full and harmonious. Aromas of old oak and caramel

In the winery

Gonzalez Byass was founded in 1835 in the town of Jerez, Andalucia, in southern Spain by Manuel M Gonzalez. The company is still in the hands of the founding family, now in its 5th generation. Gonzalez Byass can offer a wide variety of Sherries, from crisp, dry Finos to rich, nutty 30 year old dessert wines. Gonzalez Byass owns 850 hectares of vineyards, all situated in the best area of Jerez, known as Jerez Superior. Here the chalky Albariza soils and the warm Atlantic climate contribute to the character of the Palomino grapes. Average age of these rare Old Solera sherries is aproximately 30 years, 20 aged as vintage sherry and 10 in the "solera" system. All the grapes are from vineyards owned by Gonzalez Byass in the "Jerez Superior" area.
