About this Wine:
Light amber in color. It is nutty and dry with nuances of vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Dry and very concentrated, this wine has a long and elegant finish.

Aged in American oak casks in the traditional "Solera y Criadera" in the Lustau bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera. This exceptional sherry brings together the finesse and delicacy of an Amontillado with the richness and body of an Oloroso. An extremely versatile wine.

Serve slightly chilled, between 13 - 14 ºC (55-57 ºF) in a white wine glass with cheese or iberico ham. Ideal with consommes, cold cuts, foie-gras and well-seasoned dishes.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Inviting, with pecan, bitter singed almond and cardamom notes, backed by singed cedar, black walnut and cocoa powder accents. The open, friendly finish lets a date hint play out. Drink now." - JM (Aug 31, 2014)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Dark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas. It's a bit tangy, but being as zesty as it is propels maple, white chocolate and apricot flavors. This one has depth and a very long finish, which makes it a regal but still approachable palo cortado. Overall it's similar to an amontillado, but with more pulsing, piercing acidity." - Michael Schachner (6/1/2009)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The dark amber NV Palo Cortado Peninsula has a sweet nose like ripe cherries and caramel, while the palate is completely dry, with notes of cashews, candied oranges and an oxidative character. A Palo Cortado on the delicate side. Drink 2013-2016." - Luis Gutierrez (Aug 2013)
