Sherry & the Mystery of Palo Cortado

Spain 2015
In Spanish / English subtitles
90 min
Suitable for all audicences


…Engaging documentary that covers various aspects of the golden-hued liquor, from production to cultural standing. Once Spain's most important export, sherry has taken a battering in the past few decades, often seen as a dowdy tipple rather than a complex, versatile drink. Jose Luis Lopez Linares aims to correct this notion, milking the ambiguity surrounding the highly prized "palo cortado," a type whose spontaneous oxidation takes the taste to a whole new level.
