Intro Del Duque Amontillado Sherry Gonzalez Byass –
Del Duque, Amontillado Muy Viejo Sherry from Spain – The solera of Del Duque began in 1835 when the Duke of Medinaceli purchased 16 sherry butts. This Amontillado Muy Viejo has more than 30 years of ageing in oak barrels giving it an intense concentration and complexity. Dry in taste with hints of cedar, leather, walnuts and a lingering, nutty finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Hand-crafted from the finest sun-ripened grapes, expertly blended and then matured in oak casks for a minimum of 30 years, the Rare Old Solera sherries are a true expression of some of the world’s finest and rarest wines.
The producer –
Gonzalez Byass has been producing high quality sherry in Jerez for over 175 years. It is best known for its award-winning, ultra-dry Fino, Tio Pepe, the perfect chilled aperitif, but also makes a wide range of other classic styles. The range includes dry and sweet Amontillados, Olorosos and the exceptional Rare Old Soleras, which are a minimum of 30 years old and are only available in tiny quantities.
Antonio Flores, their wine maker, was practically born and raised in the winery. He is qualified in Oenology from the University of Rovira and Virgili Tarragona and has been Master Blender in Jerez since 1980. According to Antonio there is nothing better than demonstrating the excellence of sherry. In 2009 Antonio Flores won the Len Evans Trophy at the IWC for consistently high quality winemaking and more recently received the IWC 2016 Award for Fortified Wine Maker of the Year.

It is a great partner for roast beef, hearty casseroles, game or mature Cheddar cheese.
