Fernando de Castilla
Antique Palo Cortado
100% Palomino Fino
Grapes are grown on estate vineyard “Pago Balbaino” on white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone.
The Antique Palo Cortado averages over thirty years in age, which qualifies it as a VORS (Vinum Optimum Rare Signatum or Very Old Rare Sherry). Grapes are pressed and fermented in stainless steel and then headlined to 20 degrees and undergoes oxidative aging in the traditional solera and criaderas system.

“The amber-colored NV Antique Palo Cortado has a clean, changing, lifted nose of white chocolate, orange marmalade, almonds and incense, while the balanced palate comes through quite intense, sharp, with good acidity and length. 3,000 bottles were filled.”
