The Nectar Pedro Ximenez from Gonzalez Byass is a dense, sweet and grape-varietal sherry from the Spanish DO Jerez wine region.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a deep, beautiful golden brown. In the nose an expressive aroma of dried fruits unfolds - especially dates, figs and raisins - and merges with fine notes of oak wood. On the palate, this sherry is wonderfully gentle with a fine fruity, excellent sweetness. The body has a great density that extends to the long-lasting finale with sweet, restrained liquorice wort.
Vinification of Byass Nectar Pedro XimenezThe
Pedro Ximenez grapes are carefully harvested and brought to the winery of Gonzalez Byass. This grape variety already has a natural sweetness - in order to concentrate it even further, the berries are dried in the sun for about 10 days. The dried grapes are then gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Finally, this wine matures for 10 years in wooden barrels of the traditional Solera and Criadera system.
Food recommendation for Pedro Ximenez Gonzalez Byass Nectar
This sweet sherry goes great with creamy cream ice cream, pudding with fresh fruit, muffins with liquid chocolate core or even with small snacks - nuts and spicy cheese cubes.
