Characteristics of Fernando de Castilla Antique Palo Cortado

Fernando de Castilla Antique Palo Cortado is a fortified wine produced by the Rey Fernando de Castilla winery 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.

Designation of Origin D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry

Winery Rey Fernando de Castilla

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
