Una Palma by Gonzalez Byass from the Spanish DO Jerez wine-growing region is a grape variety pure, balanced sherry that is vinified exclusively from the Palomino Fino grape variety.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a delicate light gold with greenish highlights. The polished bouquet unfolds delicate aromas of dried nuts, freshly baked bread, floral accents of chamomile and mineral nuances thanks to the Albariza base. Very dry with a strong personality, this sherry takes the palate. The nutty notes of the nose are reflected and accompanied by a balanced, fresh texture. The finale is wonderfully long lasting.
Vinification of Gonzalez Byass Una Palma Fino
After the careful harvesting of the Palomino Fino grapes, the harvested goods are gently ground in the wine cellar of Gonzalez Byass. At low temperatures, this sherry is fermented in Inox steel tanks and then sprayed on to 15.5% by volume and placed in oak barrels called sobretablas (barrels for the most recent vintages).
For 6 years, this sherry matures in the wooden barrels and is unfiltered and clarified on the bottle after this maturation period.
Food recommendation for the Una Palma Byass Fino
Enjoy this dry sherry lightly chilled just solo or pass this wine with fresh seafood and fish in creamy sauces.
