The Lepanto Solera Gran Reserva by Gonzalez Byass from the Spanish wine region DO Jerez is distilled exclusively from the Palomino Fino grape variety.
This brandy shines in the glass in a bright topaz with orange-gold shades. The nose reveals an elegant bouquet with fine notes of raisins, nuts, almonds, vanilla and caramel. Its dry, ripe and complex taste reflects the warm spicy aromas of the bouquet and is crowned by a long and velvety aftertaste.
Vinification of Byass Solera Gran Serva Lepanto
For this brandy, only selected, best Palomino Fino grapes are used and pressed in the wine cellar of Bodega Los Arcos. The fine must is fermented rapidly and then burned twice in copper boilers. The copper burners are two original Alambics Charentais with a volume of 25hl.
Only the fine firing with 65 to 72 volume percent is used for this brandy and placed in the Solera and Criadera system for a total of 12 years. These are 600 litres of American oak wooden barrels, which are also used for sherry production. For 9 years this brandy matures in former Tío-Pepe barrels - the remaining 3 years in Matusalem Cream-Sherry barrels.
