Gonzalez Byass Leonor Palo Cortado
- Jerez, Spain
The grapes destined for Leonor are pressed using pneumatic Wilmes presses therefore obtaining the highest quality must. Only the ‘mosto yema’ the free run and first press must is used for this wine, considered the most delicate and elegant
Leonor is described as the wild child of Jerez. Due to its misterious ageing process could be described as similar to an amontillado on the nose and similar to an oloroso on the mouth. Leonor shows a light mahogany colour with golden tones and slightly orange rim. On the nose intense and complex with typical amontillado notes such as hazlenuts perfectly balanced with other aromas such as bitter orange and mature oak. On the palate powerful and intense with toasted notes yet smooth and silky.
