Who makes this and where is it made?

The Estevez family have owned this well-respected sherry bodega for 20 years, although it has been in existence since the 1200s.

Tasting notes

The Don Gonzalo Sherry has a luscious amber colour, with hints of caramel, fig, and other dried fruits. It's full-bodied with a rich, flavourful palate. While there is a hint of natural sweetness, this is barely perceptible, and the wine finishes dry, with a lovely walnut and pecan complexity.

Drink dates

Drink now or keep for several years

Ideas for drinking/food matching

A great Christmas wine as it matches with walnuts, dates, figs and a cheese board well (Manchego and blue cheese for example). You could also add to a meat sauce, game dishes or mushroom risotto to add richness and depth, if there's any left!

Technical Details

The wine is composed of 100% Palomino Fino grapes. 600 Litre American oak vats casks are used to ferment this wine. Once 13% alcohol is achieved, it is then fortified to 18% ABV and ages 100% oxidatively. The wine gradually increases in strength through evaporation and concentration in the solera system. The final wine has an average age of more than 20 years.
