Pedro Ximénez, a dark nectar to discover…
Pedro Ximénez is an unique extraordinary and unrepeatable wine, dense and dark, with caramel and dates scents, dried fruits and chocolate, sweet and mellow.
It takes its name from the grape variety used, which is left to sun-dry for winemaking with the Solera-Criaderas method.
The high quality is due to the nature of where Pedro Ximénez is produced: harsh and windy wheather, and the famous albarizas (the white lands), a chalky and ivory soil.
These combination of adverse climate, actually favor grapevines to enrich berries with sugars and acids, making them perferct for long aging.
It can rest for decades in barrels before bottling!
Perfect with desserts rich in structure, cocoa and dried fruits, this PX is the most suitable to accompany even chocolate, but it manages to best express its extraordinary character as it is.
