González Byass Solera 1847 is a cream made with Palomino Fino and Pedro Ximénez varieties in the D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry by González Byass.

The origins of González Byass date back to 1835 when a young Manuel María González Ángel arrived in Jerez with the aim of producing and marketing the Wines of Jerez all over the world under the name of Tío Pepe. A successful enterprise that eventually became González Byass. A whole wine family that currently has wineries in the most emblematic areas of Spain.

The Pedro Ximénez variety that González Byass Solera 1847 includes goes through the process of "asoleo". This consists of placing the grapes outdoors to ‘raisinify’ them. The Palomino variety is harvested and transported to the winery quickly to avoid oxidation due to high temperatures.

In the winery, the two grape varieties for González Byass Solera 1847 are gently pressed separately and the free-run must is obtained. After fermentation, the Palomina wine is fortified at 18% and Pedro Ximénez at 15.5%, and oxidative ageing is carried out in an American oak cask. Once mixed the two wines remain in solera for 8 years under the system of Criaderas and Soleras.

González Byass Solera 1847 is a generous, tasty and powerful wine that is ideal for snacks and desserts.

This important company from Andalusia, owned by the González family, from Jeréz, has always been linked to the world of alcoholic beverages since 1835, and is one of the most prestigious and well-known sherry wineries in the world. Their almost 180 years of experience support their good work and deep knowledge in this sector. Wisdom, combined with an open minded approach, allows them to strengthen the current business, harvest after harvest, and to project a sustained growth in order to remain competitive in the difficult and changing current market.
Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
