You will like to know that…

At just 23 years of age, Manuel Maria Gonzalez decided to dedicate his life to the production of wine and spirits. To that end, in 1835, he founded González Byass in Jerez, Spain. The Gonzalez family has remained closely linked to the history and creation of wines from that region ever since, creating its own family of wine through expansion. It has incorporated wineries from some of the most emblematic regions of Spain into its catalogue of exceptional products.

Lepanto Solera Gran Reserva begins with the selection of the best Palomino grapes, which must be grown exclusively in the Jerez region. These grapes are then twice distilled in pot stills before being aged in American oak barrels for a minimum of 12 years. The first nine years of ageing take place in barrels that were previously used for Tio Pepe and the final three years in barrels that were used for Matusalem. The use of these two types of wood allows the brandy to draw its unique taste and aroma from the wood.

After its ageing is finished, the final product is a delicate, topaz-coloured Jerez brandy. It is dry and gives off notes of caramel, vanilla, and toasted nuts. Try it in a brandy glass either neat or on the rocks. You can watch as the brandy shows off its tones and colours. Lepanto Solera Gran Reserva is perfect for pairing with chocolate or cheese.

4 /5

- Golden amber
- A bottle designed especilly for brand, "decanter" type. Decortated by hand based on desings from the "Real Fabrica de la Granja".
- Dry, delicate, complex and persistant. Extremely elegant.
- Very fragant, notes of old oak.
- Made from 100% Palomino grape distillates at 60 degrees, denominated "holanda".
- Criaderas and solera. Aged in American oak casks, previousuly used for ageing of sherry.
- Can not be calculated as it is a brandy aged in the "solera" system. More than 15 years in the "solera" system.
- Serve at room temperature. Serve a small measure in a brandy glass so that its exquisite aroma is more easily appreciated.
- Drink slowly, with enjoyment and without haste.
- Very appropiate for after-dinners, with coffee, during the afternoon/evening.
- Lepanto is one of the products which we are most proud of at Gonzalez Byass. The best holandas (eau-de-vie) are choosen for the Lepanto Solera. The systematic blending is done at an excruciatingly slow pace and well over a decade passes before Lepanto reaches the final solera, where it is ready for bottling. In fact, this quite unique brandy must travel through fifteen scales of increasing age within the "Solera system".
- Century-old oak casks and infinite patience play an important part in the production of this truly magnificent "Solera Gran Reserva".
- The reputation of Lepanto helps the "Brandy de Jerez" in general, situate itself among the great distilled drinks of the world.
