From “the leading cellar of Sanlucar de Barrameda” (Wine Advocate), this is Barbadillo’s remarkable, long aged Palo Cortado. From solera wines at least 30 years old, it shows the roundness and richness of Oloroso with the subtle bite of Amontillado.
"Aromas of roasted almonds, cashews, raisins, and marmalade. Intense, powerful, and long"
Jay Miller Wine Advocate
If you’re not yet a convert to the wonderful, rich, beautifully balanced flavours of top quality sherry, here’s a great place to start. Palo Cortado is a highly prized, magnificently complex sherry style, combining characteristics of Amontillado and Oloroso. This one from the renowned Barbadillo producer uses solera wines aged for at least 30 years. No wonder it is so complex. Founded in 1821, Barbadillo has world renown. Indeed, in 2015 it was named ‘Best Winery of the Year’ by Guía Peñín and its Manzanilla Solear was awarded ‘Best Manzanilla in the World’. Seventh generation, the company is still one of the most innovative in the wine world and boasts 500 hectares of Jerez vines and the largest stocks of Palo Cortado wines for blending.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
