Description

Details

One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen - a Norwegian with a passion for top quality sherry, and 15 years experience at Osborne. After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries. The bodega's reputation is based on the excellence of the Antique range of intensely pure and complex single solera Sherries whose award winning packaging makes them even more impressive. The Antique Palo Cortado was awarded 'Best Dry Fortified Trophy' at the 2011 New Wave Spanish Wine Awards, whilst the Antique Amontillado scooped the trophy for ‰ЫчDry Fortified over еЈ10‰ЫЄ at the 2011 Decanter World Wine Awards.

Vineyards
Produced in the Jerez region of Andalusia, Spain.

Vinification
Only alambic distillates are used for Fernando de Castilla's Gran Reserva Brandies. The distilled spirit is aged in barriques for 3 to 6 years before entering the " Solera " System, where it is then aged for a further decade. The exceptional Unico Gran Reserva Brandy comes from a lot of 15 barrels that were separated from the original Solera in 1972 and nothing has been drawn from this batch since . From the year 2000 onwards a limited number of bottles of this brandy are hand-bottled each year. The Unico has been aged for over 40 years in Sherry casks.
