"100% Pedro Ximénez, which are laid out in the sun after picking until they are practically raisins. Ebony in colour with iodine highlights. The aromas are reminiscence of figs and raisins in the nose. Enormously sweet, velvety and soft on the palate, well balanced, with a very long finish."
"Clear mahogany with a lustrous amber tinge. The bouquet is rich and heady with suggestions of sweet muscatels and candied orange peel and it’s like liquid toffee caramel in both texture and taste. It’s warm and spicy with an infinite depth of raisined fruit and a satisfyingly sweet finish."
"Baked figs, caramel, nutmeg and clove. Like cake mix from grandmas bowl. Elegant freshness to lift the fruit."
93/100 Wine Enthusiast, Editors Choice
"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 flavours 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."
Decanter Wine Awards 2015
"A lighter Pedro Ximénez style which is generously soft and satisfying. A Bonfire's Night palate of molasses, black treacle, smoked cedar wood, baked apples and cinammon. Intense, long and great for the price."
