This solera was created in 1862 in honour of her Majesty Queen Isabel II of Spain to commemorate her visit to the vineyard. Amber-hued, its bouquet offers a sublime combination of the dried fruits present in Palomino grapes blended with the sweetness of the sun-bathed Pedro Ximenez grapes. More than 30 years of ageing lend to a spectacular concentration to this Palo Cortado Muy Viejo (Very aged Palo Cortado). We recommend you taste it with pates, quality cold cuts or goat cheese. It is best served at room temperature.

5 Stars & 19.5+/20 (99) Raymond Chan, February 2018
"Deep mahogany colour with orange hues on the rim. The bouquet is rich and dense and very harmoniously integrated with layers of dried fruits, with fruit-cake nuances, soft and savoury nutty oak, with a melding of caramel and hints of rancio detail. Sweet on the palate and medium-full bodied, this is supremely elegant and refined, and velvety smooth in flow. The mouthfeel is silky, with an interwoven array of flavours of soft nuts and fruits, with aromatic caramel notes and rancio suggestions. This has a very fine and taut core, and very long finish. Sensational. 87% Palomino and 13% Pedro Ximinez, aged 30 years, 20.0% alc. and 50 g/L RS. (375 ml)."
