Palo Cortado Obispo Gascon, Barbadillo

Palo Cortado, the mystery sherry that begins life heading towards an amontillado style but then loses its protective flor and heads more in the Oloroso direction. The result is something quite rare that sits between the two in terms of style. Barbadillo's Palo Cortado is particularly good, with a dried fruit and citrus peel character that combines with the saline nutty characteristics that are common to many richer sherries. This is a true delight to be enjoyed with hard cheeses, nuts or meaty raised pies.
