The González Byass family has been active in the production of quality wines since 1855 and has remained buoyant in the industry thanks to quality wines such as Leonor Palo Cortado. This is a monovarietal of fine Palomino that ages, on average, for 12 years in American oak barrels.
The maturation of the Leonor Palo Cortado occurs after a careful fortification process and the Soleras system that is characteristic of these wineries is followed. During ageing, the wine is exposed to the air, which allows full oxidation.
At the end of this arduous process, you get a powerful, intense and balanced wine.
