Gonzalez Byass Nectar Pedro Ximenez Sherry
The Gonzalez Byass Premium Range is a collection of authentic, premium quality sherries. They make the sherry using the traditional style with the finest quality grapes from vineyards owned by Gonzalez Byass in the “Jerez Superior” zone.
- Gonzalez Byass Nectar pedro ximenez sherry shows an intense ebony colour
- The nose has rich aromas of raisins, figs and dates accompanied by honey, syrup and fruit preserve
- On the palate it is velvety and smooth with good acidity which alleviates the sweetness
Serve slightly chilled in a small wine glass and pair with chocolate desserts, fruit cake, or pour over ice cream.
The pedro ximenez grapes are harvested late and then laid out on esparto mats in the vineyard. For up to two weeks they dry out and raisin in the sun. During this time the grape loses about 40% of its volume due to evaporation of water which causes concentration of sugars.
The raisined grapes then undergo a strong press to extract the remaining juice. The must then begins to ferment although it stops at around 7% alcohol due to sugar stress. At this time the wine is fortified to 15% alcohol and then enters into the nectar solera. The wine remains in cask for an average of 8 years following the traditional Solera system.
