Description

Gonzalez Byass sherries are produced from their bodega in Jerez, Spain, where unique, chalky vineyard soils retain moisture to help vines thrive during long, hot summers. Pedro Ximenez grapes are late harvested and then sundried for sweet concentration. Strong pressing before fermentation and fortification to 15% abv before entering the Néctar solera. The wine remains in cask for an average of 8 years following the traditional Solera system. 

This creates the aptly named Nectar, a sweet sherry deep umber in colour with nectar-like texture due to its high sugar content. Rich aromas of raisins, figs and dates are accompanied by honey, syrup and fruit preserve. Velvety and smooth on the palate with good acidity which alleviates the sweetness before a long and flavourful finish. Try on its own or as a dessert wine, poured over vanilla ice cream, with dark chocolate cakes or
caramel based desserts.

Sherry has run though the veins of five generations of the Gonzalez family since 1835 with founder Manuel Maria Gonzalez. Their beautiful and historic bodega is packed with barrels in every corner, from young Finos destined to bring joy to tapas’ feasts, exceptional Rare Old Soleras, and majestic vintage Olorosos and Palo Cortados.
