Characteristics of Fernando de Castilla Antique Palo Cortado
Fernando de Castilla Antique Palo Cortadois a fortified wine produced by the Rey Fernando de Castillawinery in Jerez.
The winery is located in the centre ofJerez de la Frontera (Cádiz). It is a hundred years old, and in the last few years, it has started to produce young fortified wines as well as the Antique range, which are old wines from the winery’s antique vintages.
Fernando de Castilla Antique Palo Cortado is a single-variety Palomino Fino. This wine comes from 14 very old barrels from the winery’s vintages which are over 30 years old. The barrels are refreshed with a Palo Cortado from a small warehouse in the area, and with their own finos that have some differences and seem to have great potential. Every year, they release a small quantity of the wine to the market in order to keep the vintage very old.
Fernando de Castilla Antique Palo Cortado is the winery’s most complex wine. This is due to the two periods of ageing which this wine has undergone, the first, under a cap of ‘flor’ yeast, and the other, oxidative ageing. A superb wine.
Serve at 12ºC

Jerez is home to an exceptional culture in winemaking and viticulture, producing an incredible variety of wines. Sherry and the DO. Jerez region are unlike any other wine or region in Spain and symbolise a centuries-old culture and a true art form of ecological tradition. Even today it is fair to say that these wines have not found their equivalent in the world, and are therefore a real asset to the Spanish word of wine.
