Manuel Maria Gonzalez Angel moved to Jerez in 1865 where he bought a small sherry Company. Twenty years later as the business grew he formed a partnership with his English importer Robert Blake Byass and the firm of Gonzalez Byass was formed. In 1998 the descendants of Robert Byass withdrew from the company so today it is owned and run by the direct descendants of Mr Gonzalez. The fourth and fifth generations currently sit on the board. Their portfolio includes the famous Sherries of Tio Pepe and Croft, but they also produce wines from many regions of Spain as well as liqueurs and brandies.
...you can buy one of the most brilliant sherries I've come across recently: Gonzalez Byass's fine, nutty Leonor Palo Cortado, a style somewhere between a dry amontillado and an oloroso.
The Guardian, 16th June 2012
A very superior dry Sherry from the reliable family house of González Byass, this pure Palomino shows fragrant salted caramel aromas followed by just off-dry caramel and butterscotch flavours and lots of figgy, nutty undertones that add to the mouthwateringly savoury complexity and dry finish. Rating: 92/100 Goes with: Aperitif wine.

That a full-sized bottle of wine of this class costs roughly the same as nasty, entry-level red Burgundy gives some indication of how under-priced fine sherry remains in the UK. Beautiful complexity, notes of dried fruits and nuts, just so long.
London Evening Standard, 20th September 2012
Bready, doughy nose plus ripe fruit that fills out the palate. A little lighter than most. Rating: 16.5/20 Drink: 2012-2014
