Sherryweek 2020 : Gonzalez Byass Viña AB

Our second bottle for #sherryweek is Gonzalez Byass Viña AB, which is an Amontillado sherry. Made from the same Palomino grapes as a Fino sherry, but aged 12 years in American oak, instead of 4 to 5 years for Fino sherry. This wine starts it’s life as Tio Pepe, but after 4 to 5 years in the Tio Pepe Solera, it’s transferred into the Viña AB Solera for another 8 years.

Viña AB is a young amontillado which has experienced both ageing under flor and oxidative ageing. On the nose typical Palomino aroma of hazelnuts and slight reminders of the yeast. On the palate subtle notes of oak. Aftertaste with slight saltiness and bitterness. 

Served in a small white wine glass and perfectly paired with clams, mussels, white meat, rice dishes, artichokes and asparagus. 

Easy apero : Viña AB & Tonic. 


45 ml Gonzalez Byass Viña AB (Amontillado sherry)
45 ml White vermouth
2 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters
2 dashes Angostura Orange bitters

Stir together in a mixing glass with lots of ice. Strain into a cocktailglass.
Garnish with a lemon peel.
