Information
The rarest of sherries and the ultimate sherry all rolled into one.
 
There's lots of smoke and mirror stuff goes on in sherry land and Palo Cortado is probably the style with the most mystery.  Basically, a fino that has developed normally and healthily suddenly 'fails' and so initial thoughts in the bodega will be to fortify and move into the Amontillado solera (the area in the warehouse/bodega with barrels of a similar style all grouped together).  But, after checking, the sherry seems to have a different quality and may be considered suitable eventually to transform into the the finest of sherry jewels - a Palo Cortado.  Somehow, the PC combines the fineness of Amontillado with the richer, rounder style of an Oloroso.

Probably the best value wine in the world!
