Palo Cortado Escondido
Called “Escondido”, meaning “Hidden”, this unique old school palo cortado is aged in 12 butts that have been duly hidden by José G. Infante, our Cellar Master, labelling them under another denomination in order to be safe from undesirable venencias (long-handled dipper for sampling sherries). This wine has been minimally treated to get the maximun flavours into the bottle.
Coppery mahogany color with iodine rim. Pungent aroma of nuts, hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts, with hints of varnish, with hints of caramel and vanilla. The palate is very dry flavored almonds and walnuts, with great structure and a slight roundness and saline notes, bitter, hot, very long finish.
May be taken alone, but can be accompanied with nuts, hard cheese, broth and stews or meats (oxtail, carrillada …). Serve between 12 and 14 º C.
