Label for González Byass Matusalem Very Old Sweet Oloroso 37.5cl (Half Bottle)

Product Details

Tasting Notes

One of my all-time favourites, this fabulous Oloroso has been aged for 30 years giving it aromas of dried fruit and almond, a deep molasses texture and taste and a rich, nutty finish-I would normally serve this as an aperitif or after a meal with rich cheeses, but this is also seriously good poured over creamy vanilla ice cream-Oloroso can be sweet or dry, but this one is deliciously sweet.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Matusalem 30-year-old Oloroso Gonzalez Byass. Wow! This wine had been carefully looked after for years and it's finally released for your pleasure an an average price of 50p per year. Amazing value. This belongs in your line-up beacuase it's world class, a snip at the price and embodies the spirit of Christmas. And look at it this way: if you don't like it, Father Christmas will happily guzzle the lot. It's nut brown, intensely tangy and sweet with a citrus peel kick to the finish that makes you suck your teeth.

Background

History

Gonzalez Byass was founded in Jerez by Manuel Maria Gonzalez in 1835. The first Barrels of Tio Pepe were exported to London in 1844, and in 1855 the UK distributor, Robert Blake Byass was made a partner in order to strengthen links to the UK. Ever since, Gonzalez Byass has been dedicated to the production of quality sherry wines, and is still controlled by the Gonzalez family, now in it's fifth generation.
