Gonzales Byass Leonor 12 Years Palo Cortado
Leonor by Antonio Flores is described as the wild child of Jerez. Due to its mysterious ageing process it could be described as similar to an Amontillado on the nose and similar to an Oloroso on the palate. Leonor shows a light mahogany colour with golden tones and slightly orange rim. On the nose intense and complex with typical Amontillado notes such as hazelnuts perfectly balanced with other aromas such as bitter orange and mature oak. On the palate powerful and intense with toasted notes yet smooth and silky.
SERVING AND PAIRING
Leonor should be served between 10 and 12 oC in a small white wine glass.
Due to its power and structure this Palo Cortado is perfect with hard cheese, salty caramel, strong meats such as venison and dry aged beef.
