Marqués de Rodil Especial Palo Cortado N/V

Made from 100% Palomino, this special Palo Cortado is the result of a long and extraordinary selection process. Developed in an extra-special aged solera from a particular "corner" of the bodega that dates back to 1860, this rare sherry is a jewel in the Hidalgo portfolio. Bottled only if and when the capataz feels it is ready, this wine has an average age of 15 to 20 years and is a top expression of the terroir inside the bodega.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful amber in color, Palo Cortado has delicate aromas of toasted nuts and caramel that continue to unfold on its dry, refined palate. Aromatic and elegant, the wine is well-balanced with a rich and lingering finish. In Jerez, the locals drink this style of Palo Cortado with the main meal.  

Food Pairing

Pairs with soups, savory stews and roasted meats or save for the meditation at the end of the meal.
