      Winemaker Notes

      This 30 year old Sherry is a blend of Palo Cortado and PX. Dark amber in color it is an interesting wine with an elegant and delicate nose with notes of nuts and concentrated fruits. On the palate this wine is complex and intense with notes of caramel and mature oak. Serve slightly chilled. Ideal with mature cheeses and game meats.

      Layers of mouthwatering flavours; dried fruits, peanut brittle, cream caramel, coffee, cedar and a beautifully luscious texture with freshness, lift and a long, rich finish.

      Wine Enthusiast
      Aromas of burnt orange and baking spices are upright and snappy for a Sherry that's fairly creamy. Fine acidity is what keeps this on an even keel and what gives lift to flavors of caramel, brown sugar and candied walnut. This is full and voluminous on the finish.
      WS 92
      Wine Spectator
      Offers a tantalizingly sweet edge, as date and brown bread notes lead the way, followed by hints of honey and fruitcake on the finish. A flash of ginger gives this good tension. Bring on the salted almonds and jamón. Drink now.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The NV Apostoles VORS is a blend of Palomino made into Palo Cortado and 10% Pedro Ximenez, assembled after their first five years of aging after which they completed their 30 years in barrel together. It shows a mahogany color and a predominant note of raisins among the hazelnuts, candied fruit and sweet vanilla. The off-dry palate has intense flavors of dates, dry figs and raisins, with great persistence and length. The blending makes it very approachable and good to combine with cured cheeses. A unique, off-dry Palo Cortado. Drink 2013-2017.

      Gonzalez Byass The Solera System at Work Winery Image
      González Byass was created in 1835 by Manuel Maria González and remains in family hands today, now in the fifth and sixth generation. Founded in Jerez de la Frontera, Andalusia, in the heart of Sherry country, it is dedicated to the production of high-quality sherries. The Sherry triangle, made up of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda, has a unique microclimate influenced by the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. Production is dominated by the Palomino variety, and vines are planted in the white Albariza soil, with high chalk content which is excellent for retaining moisture. These soil conditions, combined with over 3,000 hours of annual sunshine, fresh, humid breezes from the west (poniente) and warm, dry breezes from the east (levante) have formed the perfect marriage with the Palomino variety to produce an array of sherry styles.

      All sherries are aged following the traditional Solera system where the wines are blended in 600 litre American oak casks. Many styles are produced with distinctive characters depending on whether they have been aged under the influence of the flor (a layer of natural yeast) or as an oloroso (in contact with oxygen).

      Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

      Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in many styles from dry to sweet. True Sherry can only be made in Andalucía, Spain where the soil and unique seasonal changes give a particular character to its wines. The process of production—not really the grape—determine the type, though certain types are reserved for certain grapes. Palomino is responsible for most dry styles; Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria are used for blending or for sweet styles.
