DESCRIPTION

For almost two centuries Tio Pepe cellar masters have used the 'Palma' chalk mark system in our bodega. Traditionally the Palma mark was used on barrels to indicate wines of exceptional finesse nd delicacy of aromas. The more Palmas on the barrel, the greater the maturity of the wine. Cuatro Palmas is an extremely rare old sherry, having aged for more than 4 decades in the last four casks of the 'Museo Solera'. We select only half a cask to create this timeless gift that is now a fine old Amontillado. It is bottled 'En Rama' without filtration or clarification.

TASTING NOTES

"The NV Fino Cuatro Palmas 2015 is one selection from one barrel containing wine averaging 50 years of age, and despite its name, it's a textbook Amontillado - as it's not possible to have a Fino of that age, as the flor can hardly live beyond ten years. This is always among the best in its class, with telltale aromas of Amontillado, varnished woods, hazelnuts and sea weed. It has an elegant combination of acidity and salty flavors, with a volatile and spirity touch that lifts the finish up, leaving a salty taste on your lips. It's wild and sharp as these old amontillados should be. In any case, it's a superb bottle of Sherry. 500 half-liter bottles." Wine Advocate
