Jerez Cortado is unusual, in that it first ages under a film of yeast ‘ or’ which protects it from oxygen, but then loses that  flor to age oxidatively at the very end of the process.  Thus, the freshness of Manzanilla and the complexity of dry Amontillado are combined. Over twenty years old, Jerez Cortado is entitled to the designation VOS, (Very Old Sherry). About 190 years ago when the French occupied this part of Spain this sherry was sold to the British troops under the name ‘Wellington’.  The 1st Duke of Wellington’s portrait is still used on the label today. Another sherry was also simultaneously sold to the French under the name ‘Napoleon’!

Tasting notes Penetrating aromas, nutty yet with tangy freshness. One of the great dry sherries.  Thee palate is full rich and rounded.

How to serve Superb on its own or as an aperitif, but is also recommended with soups and other well  avoured foods. Its aroma is so good that many Spaniards have taken to putting a drop on their handkerchiefs to enjoy its aroma wherever they go.
