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.
Noé is a sherry from the exclusive VORS collection, one of the Very Old Rare Sherries from González Byass. The deep dark brown, almost black wine from Jerez is made from the pedro ximenez grape. The grapes are sun-dried so that they retain their exceptionally high concentration of residual sugars. The wine is aged for 30 years in 100% oak barrels. Aromas of caramel, apple syrup, dried figs, raisins and nuts. The aftertaste is full, spicy and velvety. This amazing wine is actually a dessert in itself, but it also pairs exceptionally well with desserts of bitter chocolate, ice cream, and intense blue cheeses such as Cabrales or Roquefort.
