Grapes on their optimum degree of maturity are spread out on mats to dry in the sun until they become raisins. When pressed, they deliver are intensely rich must to which grape alcohol is added to prevent fermentation and loss of sweetness. The "Solera System” for this wine was started in 1927.

Takes a slightly more elegant approach, with a profile of green tea, ginger and toasted cumin out front, backed by dark ganache, prune and raisin flavors. A lingering praline edge adds lift. Drink now.—J.M.

The impressive 1927 Pedro Ximenez Solera, from a Solera begun nearly 80 years ago, boasts a dark amber color as well as an extraordinary nose of creme brulee, liquefied nuts, marmalade, and maple syrup. Huge and viscous, yet neither cloyingly sweet nor heavy, it is a profound effort priced unbelievably low. It is meant to be drunk alone at the end of a meal.

Wine maker notes
Colour: A naturally sweet wine, of dark dense mahogany colour. Nose: Deep rich nose with reminiscent of prunes and chocolate. Palate: sumptuous wine of great intensity, rich concentrated fruit in the mouth with a full, rich, succulence, seemingly unending finish.

Food pairing
The right wine to end a meal in a marvellous way, to sip with dessert or topping ice cream, fruit-salads and pastries or with blue cheese. Delicious refreshment with ice.
