Rey Fernando de Castilla, NV Palo Cortado Antique, Jerez
$510.60 / 6-bottle case (500mL)
The Antique range of sherries are the flagship wines of the bodega. This Palo Cortado comes from a small solera and it is a natural evolution of biological ageing to oxidative ageing. "A subtle nose that magically combines the elegance of an Amontillado and the body and sensation of an Oloroso, with a beautiful long finish." The wine has an average age of 30 years, qualifying as a VORS (Vinum Optimum Rare Signature, or Very Old and Rare Sherry) but the bodega does label it as such. Try this superb Palo Cortado with sausages, smoked meats, mushrooms or artichokes.

About the producer
In Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castilla, located in the historic center of Jerez, one can find the real treasures of this wine-making region. The collection of sherries is made up of the finest wines from the area, ranging from the pale, light and elegant finos to the unique Antique sherries. In recent years our wines have received the highest national and international distinctions. The collection would not be complete without our old Sherry Vinegars, bottled in very limited quantities to ensure unmatched quality.
The famous brandies of Fernando de Castilla are made using only alembic destillates of selected white wines. These are first aged in new barrels of French and American oak and thereafter for long periods in barrels that have previously contained the finest sherries. Only brandies of the highest categories of D.O:, named Solera Reserva and Solera Gran Reserva are produced in our cellars. Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castilla is a funding member of the D.O. Brandy de Jerez
The aim of Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castilla has always been to offer the very best products from the sherry district presented in an elegant and contemporary way.
