Fernando de Castilla

Pedro Ximenez Premium Sweet
Jerez de la Frontera
0,75
White
Unlike the other sherries, Pedro Ximenez is produced with the grape variety of the same name which is a sweet sherry. After the harvest, the grapes are dried in the sun for two days and then pressed. The wines are enriched with cognac up to 15% ABV. Then they age in a solera for an average of 12 years. The Pedro Ximenez has a very dark color, almost mahogany. In the nose there are rich and warm aromas of grapes and dates, brown sugar and speculaas. The rich complexity is offset by a good acidity and a long finish. Delicious with vanilla ice cream or as a liqueur after dinner with some nuts.
