I guess the market pressure (there's even a documentary film called El Misterio del Palo Cortado) made them release the first Palo Cortado I've seen from Pérez Barquero, the NV 1955 Palo Cortado Solera Cincuentenario. The back label explains that the wine started its life as a Fino with a biological phase under flor, so that might be the explanation for a saltier palate than the Oloroso from the same range. These wines are not from 1955 and in fact, they are not vintage wines, they are a multi-vintage blend aged in a solera that hypothetically would have been started around 50 years after the winery was created in 1905, hence the brand name 1955. This is quite similar to the Oloroso, in fact I would have had problems pronouncing it a Palo Cortado, and it would be difficult to say more than that it is a great old oxidative wine with great elegance, concentration and power. The initial bottling is 200 bottles and they plan to do more batches of the same size, always clearly identified on the front label. (LG)
