Reviews of purchase "Apostoles" Palo Cortado 30 Years Old, gift box
The wine is dark amber color.
Fine wine has a rich, smooth, well-balanced taste with lovely tones of fruits, caramel, nuts, toffee and oak. Sherry leaves a pleasant long aftertaste.
Deep and complex flavor of the wine reveals delicious shades of caramel, toffee, nuts and sea breeze.
Wine combined perfectly with ham, pate, sausage and goat cheeses, it is also an ideal aperitif. Jerez can be offered to olives and almonds to the liver and dried fruit.
