Fernando de Castilla Antique Pedro Ximenez Sherry

Product description

Pedro Ximénez is made by drying the grapes under the hot Spanish sun, concentrating the sweetness. The grapes are then pressed and begin fermentation while fortified to 15% then aged oxidatively in the traditional solera and criaderas system of oak barrels. The average age of the wine is 30 years.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The NV Antique Pedro Ximenez is produced from dehydrated Pedro Ximenez grapes in a solera system, and represents half of the production of the range. Mahogany-colored, it reveals plenty of notes of marinated balsamic herbs (somehow an old vermouth comes to mind), licorice and a fresh touch of candied apricots. The palate is fresh, sweet, with echoes of the raisins, showing medium age which makes it easier to drink. It might not be a terribly complex Pedro Ximenez but its freshness makes it very approachable.
