The type of wine called Palo Cortado is one of the greatest rarities of Sherry and Montilla wines. It is a wine that "deviates" from its initial destination of Fino to become another delicious thing. It is called like this because the foremen of the wineries mark the wine casks that go for Fino with a stroke of chalk, a stick (palo), they call it. When the wine changes its vocation, the foreman cuts (corta) the stick with another stroke of chalk.
Tasting notes: Amber in colour with tones of old gold. Aromas of nuts and dried fruit, spices. Intense and powerful. The mouth presents a long, fine and elegant drink. It is a wine with a lot of personality and structure, round, a gentleman.
The 1964 Palo Cortado Marqués de Poley Selección was aged in a solera system of which 50 botas remain. It's a very old fortified wine produced with Pedro Ximénez grapes, aged in well-seasoned American oak barrels. It is full-bodied, which hints at an Oloroso origin, and has the aromas of a very old wine with rusty nail, saltpeter, low tide, phosphor and matchstick notes with a volatile twist. Wines like this are not meant to be consumed by the general public (the price already prevents that) as their style is not easy to appreciate and might seem aggressive to some. There are 24,000 liters of this wine, and the plan is to bottle it in 375-milliliter bottles.
