González Byass Viña AB Amontillado Seco is a lively, balanced and elegant wine. It stands out for its subtle aromas of toasted fruits and nuts, and its balanced acidity in the mouth.

The origins of Bodega González Byass date back to 1835, when a young Manuel María González Ángel, born in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, arrived in Jerez at the beginning of the 19th century, determined to find his place in the thriving and booming business of Sherry. He gathered some of his savings and with the help of his uncle José Ángel de la Peña, Tío Pepe, in 1835 he bought a small winery and he started to produce and export his own wines. After a successful start, in 1855 he decided to partner with Robert Blake Byass, his agent in England. This was when the company González Byass was born.

As soon as the grapes arrive at the winery, they are softly pressed to obtain the free-run must (mosto yema), which will be used to make this wine. After fermentation, classification and fortification at 15.5% vol., the wine enters the Tío Pepe "solera", where it will remain for more than 4 years in American oak butts, following the traditional "solera" system. It goes through a biological ageing process known as "velo flor", which takes place under the layer of yeast. After these four years have gone by, the cap or flor starts to disappear and the wine will then enter the Viña AB "solera", where it will age in contact with the air and it will start to oxidise. In total, Viña AB will spend an average of 8 years in butts.

Drink as an aperitif, or with chocolate/nut-based desserts.
