Bodegas Tradicion Pedro Ximenez 20 Year Old Sherry VOS

95 points, Wine Spectator – "Supremely thick, with a syrupy feel to the buckwheat, toasted brown bread, warm date and molten chocolate notes. Not tiring or top-heavy, this offers singed walnut, almond, fig paste and Turkish coffee details that impart energy through the finish. Drink now. 500 cases made."

Description

A very special and exclusive sweet wine made from a selection of grapes of the same name, properly dehydrated in the sun and turned into wine using artisan methods. Aged under the traditional system of soleras and criaderas over many years in American oak, it is a creamy, velvety wine with a balance of non-cloying sweetness and refreshing acidity.

Pedro Ximénez is obtained from the grape variety of the same name, left in the sun to dry. A very sweet must is obtained during the winemaking, the fermentation of which is paralyzed by fortification, and the result is a wine which, after prolonged aging by the soleras system, has a very dark ebony colour with dense iodine tones, dried grape bouquets and toasted tones with caramel and honey. In the mouth, it is creamy, velvety, flavoursome, with great persistence and a balanced sweetness. A traditional wine with a limited production.
