Produced with 100% Pedro Ximenez grapes. The flavour is sweet and fruity, smooth, velvety and balanced, with a long lingering finish. Winner of the Great Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial du Bruxelles.
|Pedro Ximenez is the name of the grape that produces this extraordinarily concentrated Sherry. The "San Emilio" is almost black in color. The aroma is the essence of sweet raisins. On the palate, the wine is very sweet, smooth and unctuous. This wine is classically used as "syrup" for one of the famous desserts of Jerez: Vanilla ice cream with Pedro Ximenez Sherry. It is also ideal over pancakes. Of course, the wine can be drunk on its own, slightly chilled, in a copita (small sherry glass) or a white wine glass.

With piercing aromas of raisin pudding, molasses and spice, this rolls out the welcome mat and more. Luscious is probably as tame as you can put it; this is a ribald sweet wine with acidic backbone and hugely intense flavors of baked brown sugar, cinnamon cake and molasses. Powerful but still racy due to bracing acidity. About as good as it gets with P.X.

Delivers the weight you expect from a PX, but with fresher cut. The singed walnut, brown bread, ginger, ganache and Turkish coffee notes are allied to a mouthwatering spearmint and treacle spine. Features good energy through the finish to match the mouthcoating feel. Drink now.óJ.M.
