Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Valdespino Palo Cortado Viejo CP is a generous wine produced by the winery Valdespino in Jerez de la Frontera, D.O.Jerez.

 

Valdespino is one of the oldest wineries in Jerez. The first member of the Valdespino family who started to cultivate the vines and age the Sherry wines was Mr Alfonso Valdespino, in the 13th century. Currently, Valdespino belongs to Grupo Estévez.

Valdespino is a reference of the ageing of Sherry wines, known for their traditional methods in the production processes of their wines.

All the grapes used to produce the Valdespino cru wines come from the farm Macharnudo Alto, located around 5 km from the north-east of Jerez, at 135 metres above sea level, planted on "albariza" soils, which are typical of the area. The "albariza" are white calcareous soils that retain the water very well.

 

Valdespino Palo Cortado Viejo CP is a wine made from Palomino Fino from the renown farm Pago Macharnudo Alto, with vines that are over 25 years old.

The free-run must (mosto yema) ferments in 500-litre American oak butts. Once it is selected, it is fortified at 18% vol., going through a first ageing under the yeast cap (velo en flor), in "criaderas" and "soleras". The last "criadera" is sprayed with selected wines from the first layers (escalas) of Fino Inocente and Amontillado Tío Diego to continue with a long oxidative ageing of more than 20 years.

 

Valdespino Palo Cortado Viejo CP is a mature, complex and elegant wine. It stands out for its aromas of dried fruits and nuts, and the iodised notes. It is an old-school Sherry wine.

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.
