Due to its time in contact with oxygen Alfonso shows a golden amber colour. On the nose round intense aromas with the nuttiness of the Palomino variety standing out, in the case of this Gonzalez Byass Alfonso Oloroso Seco is hazelnuts and walnuts. As a result of the time spent in cask Alfonso shows subtle aromas of oak and spiced notes which remind of truffle or leather. On the palate flavourful and structured with a long and complex aftertaste and slight vanilla touches with a surprising sweet note on the finish.
Gonzalez Byass Alfonso Oloroso Seco is perfect with rich meat stews, cured meats and beef/goose consommé.
Alfonso should be served slightly chilled between 10 and 12ºC in a small white wine glass.
