Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2019
Garth Gallaway, Avenues Magazine
"Nectar of the Gods would describe this utterly hedonistic, sweet, and luscious Sherry made from the Pedro Ximenez grape variety. Fantastically rich and dark, it just oozes with intense and continuous golden raisin and dried fig flavours wrapped up in swathe of superbly lubricious and syrupy joy. 'Sherry has never been as good as this, at least not for me. This is dark and brooding and the flavours are extraordinarily good. Dates, figs, caramel and prunes in abundance, with a silky smooth texture. I recommend this as a wonderful wine to drink with a good, stodgy winter pudding.'"
92/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review, December 2018
"This is part of the base range for Gonzalez Byass, a great Sherry house, and is a relatively young, eight-year-old blend. With a deep amber colour and oily consistency in the glass, it offers a rich raisin aroma and is very rich and very sweet, luscious and unctuous. A decadently delicious super-sweetie."
91/100 Decanter Wine Awards 2016
"Beautifully vibrant, with gorgeous aromas of intense sultana, prune and fig. The palate is complex and rich, with sweet spice, caramel, coffee and chocolate. Intensely full, with a beautiful, mouth filling texture."
