This very old Palo Cortado is a rare sherry that has originally begun ageing in the normal style, but which subsequently loses its flor (the thin layer of yeast that protects the sherry from the air) and ends up ageing oxidatively like an oloroso. The result is a dry wine with the freshness of an amontillado and the depth and body of an oloroso.
From one of the most famous names in fortified wine, Harvey's Rich Oloroso is, as the name suggests, a rich, sweet sherry with plenty of flavour intensity. A treat for lovers of the genre, and a must-try for fans of heavily sherried malts.
Rather more special than the famous Bristol Cream, this is a super-luxurious Pedro Ximenez sherry from Harvey's, comprised of solera-aged sherry over 30 years old. Incredibly rich, sweet and unctuous. Winner of a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge 2010 and a Bronze at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
