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 Del Duque is an amontillado from the VORS collection, one of the Very Old Rare Sherries by González Byass. Amontillado is a unique wine due to its double aging process: first, this wine matures under flor, followed by a period in which the flor gradually disappears and the wine is exposed to oxidation. Made from palomino grapes. The golden brown wine is mildly dry, has aromas of nuts, dried fig and date and comes across as full and powerful. The long, complex finish is spicy and lively. The sharpness of the palate is somehow balanced by an off-dry feel that makes it very drinkable.
