Founded in 1835 by Manuel Maria González, 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. Named after a former King of Spain, Alfonoso XIII, Gonzalez Byass Alfonso Oloroso Sherry is produced from 100% Palomino Fino grapes. The must destined for Alfonso comes from the second press of the pneumatic Willmes presses so as to obtain slightly more structure and body. Following fermentation to between 11% and 12% alcohol the wine is fortified to 18% alcohol and then enters the Alfonso Solera. An empty space of 100 litres is left in the cask so that the wine has a large surface area in contact with the oxygen and therefore undergoes complete oxidisation. Alfonso remains in American oak casks following the traditional Solera system for an average of 8 years. Residual sugar: less than 4g/l. Bottled at 18%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Round intense aromas with the nuttiness of the Palomino variety standing out, in this case hazelnuts and walnuts.

Palate: Flavourful and structured with a long and complex aftertaste and slight vanilla touches.

Finish: A surprising sweet note on the finish.
