Made from 100% Palomino and aged for 30 years, this stunning example of Oloroso is intense and super complex with dried orange peel and nutty flavours through a seemingly never ending finish. 1,000 bottles were produced.

Other reviews... Roberto Amillo is a fan of Sherry and Brandy who, four years ago, had some old wines put into square bottles, that I had never tasted officially. The wines were sourced with the help of a 'capataz' from different wineries and in general are very old and of high quality. The NV Oloroso (like the Palo Cortado) was sourced from Williams & Humbert, selected from 24 barrels that had belonged to the old Pemartín & Cia winery. It's an old and elegant example of the style, with classical notes of nuts, blonde tobacco, spices and noble woods. The palate is round, lush, soft and elegant, with a spicy and spirity finish. It has the typicity of Oloroso, a common thing throughout the whole range, which was well chosen.
