Vinification Details

  • This Premium Sherry is a traditional style of Oloroso Sherry, made from Palomino, blended with 25% Pedro Ximenez. After the Palomino grapes are fermented, we fortify to 18% then age for an average 8 years. Pedro Ximenez is left to over-ripen on the vine before the grapes are left to dry in the Spanish sunshine on mats (known as Soleo). This gives us an intense, sweet juice which is aged separately. The combination of the Dry Oloroso and the intense sweet luscious PX make for a wonderful Cream Sherry.

History

  • Gonzalez Byass was founded in Jerez by Manual 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 its fifth generation.

Regional Information

  • Gonzalez Byass is situated in the city of Jerez, Andalusia, in the heart of D.O. Jerez, owning over 800 hectares of vineyard, all located in Jerez superior. This area enjoys a warm and humid climate which helps in the maturation of the grape. The soils of the area are high in chalk, known as 'albariza soil' this helps to maintain moisture during the long dry summers. With vineyards split 95% Palomino and 5% Pedro Ximenez. Gonzalez Byass is the only winery to have PX planted in Jerez.
