Prounounced ‘Ap-Ost-O-Less’ this Palo Cortado is part of the González Byass ‘Very Rare Solera’ range. Made from Palomino Fino grapes aged in a Solera created in honour of her Majesty Queen Isabel II of Spain, when she visited the company’s bodegas in 1862. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/02/2017

Appearance

Clear, deep amber.

Aroma

Fried fruit - dates, prunes and plump sultanas with light cinnamon.

Taste

Honeyed and yet on the dry side with (62 grams of sugar per litre), this Palo Cortado is wonderfully complex with acidity balancing sweetness. Hints of butterscotch, salty crème caramel, walnut and toffee.

Aftertaste

Dried fruit sweetness (particularly dates).

Overall

Served cold, as it should be, this wonderful sherry is refreshing on a hot day and warming on a cold one. My favourite of all the González Byass Very Rare range.
