This wine joins the rest of the Don Zoilo range made up of Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, cream and Pedro Ximénez.
A new Palo Cortado now forms part of the Williams & Humbert range of sherries. In this case the new wine is added to the Don Zoilo collection, joining our Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, cream and Pedro Ximénez. A range of sherries all with a minimum age of 12 years, except the 9 year-old Fino.
Palo Cortado Don Zoilo is produced with must from the first pressing of Palomino grapes grown in the best vineyard zones of Añina and Carrascal in the Jerez Superior region. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures and after classification according to quality and being fortified to 15º using the finest wine distillates, the traditional sobretablas are obtained which enter and form a part of our biologically aged soleras. According to circumstance, casks occasionally appear that are not developing in the desired direction for these finos and these are the ones that will be cut with two jugs of alcohol to form the base of the Palo Cortado soleras. After careful selection in the winery they are aged for 12 years in American oak casks.
Thus Palo Cortado Don Zoilo comes into being old gold in colour with a pungent, intense and complex aroma reminiscent of nuts and hazelnut. Dry in the mouth with a tremendously expressive retronasal presence.
Suggestions for consumption: Excellent as an aperitif for those long evenings or in short drinks. Serve between 12º-14º (19.5% abv),
