González Byass is a family business, founded in 1835, dedicated to making premium sherries and brandies in Jerez, Spain. Well-known brands such as Tio Pepe Fino Sherry, or the gems such as Matusalem or Apostoles have made González Byass one of Spain's most famous wine brands worldwide. Tradition, research and quality are the pillars of this winery, which has almost two centuries of experience. In total there are more than 10,000 hectares of vineyards in the Jerez region. The predominant Palomino grape, is named after a 13th-century Spanish knight. Should the Palomino grape grow elsewhere, it is susceptible to oxidation (darkening and spoiling), but the magical combination of the soil and the prevailing humidity promotes the growth of the protective flor yeast.
The Tio Pepe Apóstoles Palo Cortado VORS is a wine that is between an amontillado and oloroso in style and is part of the VORS collection, one of the Very Old Rare Sherries from Gonzalez Byass. The NV Apostoles VORS is a blend of Palomino made in Palo Cortado and 10% Pedro Ximenez, assembled after their first five years of maturation, after which they completed their 30 years in barrel together. The Apóstoles is a complex, rich palo cortado with an average age of 30 years. The aroma and taste contain aromas of white (hazel) nuts and walnuts. The wine is mineral and spicy with an intense, long finish. The blending makes it very accessible and easy to combine with cured cheeses. A unique, dry Palo Cortado.
