Serving and consuming

Palo Cortado with food

"Meditation wine," ideal to be slowly appreciated, to become totally immersed in the full range of well balanced sensations this exceptional wine has to offer. It may accompany nuts, cured cheeses and, at the table, the more concentrated consommés, stews and gelatinous meats (bull's tail, cheeks...)

  • Slightly Chilled in a White Wine Glass

    Serve it between 12° and 14° C in a white wine glass.

  • The Most Elegant Sherry

    It combines the subtlety of an Amontillado with the roundness of an Oloroso.

  • Ideal to Drink Glass by Glass

    Its composition allows it to be stored in open bottles for months.
