Romate Sherry Regente Palo Cortado
This product is currently sold out.
Palo Cortado is a type of sherry that is still not fully understood, as it comes about when the wine initially ages under flor yeast, but then the veil of yeast spontaneously dies and the sherry continues to age oxidatively. The Regente from Sanchez Romate is a sherry of true quality, allowed to take all the time in needs in solera. The average age of this Palo Cortado is between 15 and 20 years. It has aromas of dried fruits and nuts, orange peel, a slight salinity. In the mouth it is dry and rich, with notes of citrus, roasted coffee, bitter cocoa and hazelnut. A rare and exceptional sherry, to be served slightly chilled as an aperitif.
Juan Sánchez de la Torre originally founded Sanchez Romate in 1781 in Jerez, and to this day, Sánchez Romate is one of the oldest bodegas in Spain and one of the few that remains in family hands. This means they are still able to produce traditional wines independently, using grapes from their own vineyards (in the best albariza soil areas of Jerez). Recently they have invested in some of the most modern facilities in the region, all of which are still housed in the bodega buildings located in central Jerez. These traditional cellars with their high ceilings keep temperatures stable and allow the natural yeasts to circulate while the sand floors keep the humidity at the correct levels. The ageing process is through traditional criaderas y soleras with 500 litre American oak casks.
