Del duque: Bahia del Duque – Luxury Hotel Tenerife
Gonzalez Byass Del Duque Amontillado Sherry (375ml half-bottle)
/ 21.5% ABV
This 30 year old Amontillado shows a dark golden color due to the extended time spent in cask. On the nose sharp aromas of dried fruits and nuts. On the palate dry and powerful, well structured with an enternal aftertaste. This wine maintains a surprisingly delicate finesse. A wine to be meditated or enjoyed with powerful dishes such as small game. Serve slightly chilled.
Maple syrup, wood polish, butterscotch and toffee nose. Great finesse on the palate with a silky texture and salty caramel flavours. Long, fresh finish.
Stylish, with warm date, hazelnut, toasted almond and salted caramel notes that extend through the finish, starting dry but ending with a tantalizing echo of sweetness.
Toffee and almond aromas are a touch aggressive and hot. Matching the nose, this is intense but still well balanced by core acidity. A giant heaping of rancio blends with flavors of almond skins, apricot and salt in front of a never-ending finish.
Wine & Spirits
This muy viejo Amontillado has spent about 30 years in the solera. That age makes for concentrated wine, saline and still fierce in its acidity. Its feels austere at first, the flavors somewhat shy, overshadowed by the wine’s structure, which seems to present a thick wall of limestone. Give it time in the glass and, slowly, it begins to show more detail. It’s even better if you have mojama (salt-cured tuna) to accompany the wait.
González Byass was created in 1835 by Manuel Maria González and remains in family hands today, now in the fifth and sixth generation. Founded in Jerez de la Frontera, Andalusia, in the heart of Sherry country, it is dedicated to the production of high-quality sherries. The Sherry triangle, made up of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda, has a unique microclimate influenced by the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. Production is dominated by the Palomino variety, and vines are planted in the white Albariza soil, with high chalk content which is excellent for retaining moisture. These soil conditions, combined with over 3,000 hours of annual sunshine, fresh, humid breezes from the west (poniente) and warm, dry breezes from the east (levante) have formed the perfect marriage with the Palomino variety to produce an array of sherry styles.
All sherries are aged following the traditional Solera system where the wines are blended in 600 litre American oak casks. Many styles are produced with distinctive characters depending on whether they have been aged under the influence of the flor (a layer of natural yeast) or as an oloroso (in contact with oxygen).

Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in many styles from dry to sweet. True Sherry can only be made in Andalucía, Spain where the soil and unique seasonal changes give a particular character to its wines. The process of production—not really the grape—determine the type, though certain types are reserved for certain grapes. Palomino is responsible for most dry styles; Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria are used for blending or for sweet styles.

I tried this out of curiosity. For me, the smell (sorry, nose) is very deep, complex, mainly of wood. There are other aromas as well, but I couldn’t readily identify them. In taste, I found this sherry to be mainly nutty, woody, plus some other flavours, possibly a hint of spices. The finish is long with a nutty taste.
This is the oldest solera still running in the world over 300 years old. This wine is unbelievably complex and balanced for it’s age and and this price is a super bargain.
This is the best sherry I have ever taste since Harvey’s Palo Cortado which I could only buy from their Bristol main outlet. But now Del Duque is my favourite (although I would LOVE to try your Palo Cortado but can’t afford it) although DEl Duque is hard to find, at least in Brighton where I live.
The most amazing sherry I have tasted, it was a present and I will always be grateful to have been introduced to it and I will walk a long way for some more. Until now I thought Palo Cortado was my favourite but the Del Duque stunned us all.

Duke del Infantado | this… What is Duke del Infantado?
Duke del Infantado – Spanish title of nobility, granted on July 22, 1475 by the Catholic kings Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (Spanish) Russian, the second Marquis de Santillana from the noble family of de Mendoza (Spanish) Russian .. In 1520, the dukes del Infantado received the rights of the grandees of the first class. On the same day, July 22, 1475, the title of Count de Saldanha (Spanish) Russian was created for the heirs of the ducal title.
Main article: Dom de Mendoza
Ruins of the 10th century Saldanha castle, rebuilt for the Dukes del Infantado in the 15th century
Mendoza family, originating from the village of Mendoza (Spanish) Russian. in the province of Alava is considered one of the most important and influential in the history of Spain. The first known representative of the family is Iñigo Lopez, the first lord of Biscay (Spanish) Russian. in the 11th century. His son Lope Íñiguez was the first to adopt the surname Mendoza. The latter’s grandson, Iñigo López de Mendoza, distinguished himself at the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa. His descendant, also Iñigo Lopez (1398, Carrión de los Condes – 1458, Guadalajara), for successful participation in the Battle of Olmedo (Spanish) Russian. King Juan II of Castile granted the titles of Marquis de Santillana and Count del Real de Manzanares. In 1435 he began building a castle at Manzanares el Real. Iñigo López is also known as one of the greatest Castilian poets of his time.
The son and heir of the latter in 1475 received the title of Duke del Infantado and in the same year began the construction of the magnificent palace del Infantado (Spanish) Russian. in Guadalajara. His brother, Cardinal Mendoza, in 1482 led the Spanish church. In 1520, Carlos I included the Dukes del Infantado among the first 25 grandees of a united Spain. nine0005
Ana de Mendoza married her daughter to the second son of the Duke of Lerma. Ana, as Duke del Infantado, was succeeded by her grandson, who died without an heir, which led to the beginning of a dynastic litigation that lasted several generations.
Castle in Manzanares el Real, built for the Dukes del Infantado in the 15th century.
The House of Infantado has undergone various changes in the course of its history, including merging and separating from the family of the Dukes of Osuna. The most historically significant properties of the Infantada include:
- Palace of the Infantado in Guadalajara;
- house in Lazcano;
- Barren’s palace in the village of Ordisia in the Herrerian style;
- Castle in Manzanares el Real;
- Chateau de la Monclova in Seville.
In Madrid, the main residence was first on Prado Boulevard (Spanish) Russian, then on Don Pedro I Street. The Infantado archive is in the National Historical Archive (Spanish) Russian. He also owned 17,171 hectares of land. nine0005
Before the revolution, the dukes exercised jurisdiction over a number of settlements (Itero del Castillo, Melgar de Fernamental, Padilla de Abajo, Tobar, Villasandino).
