BARBADILLO PEDRO XIMINEZ 19% 75CL
PX, as it is better known in its abbreviated form, is the very richest and stickiest style of Sherry to be found. The Pedro Ximénez grape is picked and sun-dried to produce very concentrated sugars in the raisined grape. The result is an ultra sweet wine with a treacly texture and flavour. It is often enjoyed poured over vanilla ice cream.
Pedro Ximenez wine is obtained from grapes of the same name which undergo a traditional process known as `sunning’, whereby the fruit turns to raisins. Once the Pedro Ximenez grapes have been pressed, the must is fortified with winebased distilled spirit to bring the alcohol content up to 17.5%. It is then matured in American oak barrels following the traditional Jerez system of soleras and criaderas. This ageing or crianza is achieved through oxidation of the wine whilst in barrel and racking within each tier of the criadera.
Beautiful mahogany colour and aromas reminiscent of plums, raisins and chocolate against a background of noble oak. Velvety and syrupy on the palate. Log finish with the predominat retronasal sensation being that of
EVOLUTION AND CONSERVATION
Once bottled, mature wines that have undergone oxidative ageing can retain perfect organaleptic conditions for many years. Wine should be stored away from the light, at a temperature between 15 C and 18 C. They should be kept away from smoke, strong smells and vibrations.
