K&L Notes

Lots of attention has recently been placed on the historic region and stunning wines of Jerez. Given all the newspaper articles, restaurant by-the-glass placements, even a serious new book on the topic, the spotlight has generally avoided Rey Fernando de Castilla. Now that we finally have the wines available to us in California, it is our intention to change that and spread the word about this wonderful house. Founded in 1999 by Jan Petterson, a Norwegian who is a long-time veteran of the Sherry trade, these are excellent Sherries across the board, particularly the antique line featuring some very old, carefully kept up soleras. Petterson has proven to be quite the visionary, placing his bets on very high quality, limited production wines a good decade prior to the rise in interest in top quality, collectible Sherry. These wines are all of the highest quality and come highly recommended. (Joe Manekin, K&L Sherry buyer)

    The Rey Fernando de Castilla Palo Cortado is over 30 years of average age with both tremendous aromatics and flavors. Aromas of cocoa, roasted chestnuts, tiramisu, and nutmeg beam from the glass. The palate is bright at first, showing it’s years aged under flor with a beautifully tangy acidity, lemon rind and burnt orange peel. The palate turns to flavors of almonds, mocha and espresso on the finish. Potentially the finest example of Palo Cortado that exists. A must try bottle for Sherry lovers. Oh and properly stored, this bottle will keep well once opened for a couple of months.
