Grape Variety:

Palomino

Vinification Details:

A first gentle pressing is applied to the Palomino grapes to obtain the 'mosto yema', the first and most delicate must. After fermentation, classification and fortification the wine enters the Fino Solera, where it ages under a layer of 'flor', before being blended with pale, sweet grape musts and entering the Croft Solera. Here it ages for a further 12-18 months in American Oak barrels.

History:

Gonzalez Byass was founded in 1835 in the town of Jerez, Andalucia, in southern Spain by Manuel M Gonzalez. The company is still in the hands of the founding family, now in its 5th generation. Gonzalez Byass can offer a wide variety of Sherries, from crisp, dry Finos to rich, nutty 30 year old dessert wines.

Regional Information:

Gonzalez Byass owns 850 hectares of vineyards, all situated in the best area of Jerez, known as Jerez Superior. Here the chalky Albariza soils and the warm atlantic climate contribute to the character of the Palomino grapes.
