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.
