Pedro Ximénez grapes are laid out in the sun after picking until they are practically raisins. After that the fermentation starts slowly and its halted to maintain all the natural sugars. The resulting wine ages in for 12 years in contact with the air in Jerez de la Frontera. Ebony in colour with iodine highlights. The aromas are reminiscent of figs, raisins and dates. Enormously sweet, velvety and soft on the palate, well balanced, with a very long finish. Serve with rich desserts, cakes and pastries, or pour over vanilla ice cream. Perfect companion to for strong blue cheeses. Ideal as a digestive.

Wine EnthusiastWith 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 flavors 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

Wine SpectatorDelivers the weight you expect from a PX, but with fresher cut. The singed walnut, brown bread, ginger, ganache and Turkish coffee notes are allied to a mouthwatering spearmint and treacle spine. Features good energy through the finish to match the mouthcoating feel. Drink now.

International Wine CellarReduced coffee color, massive legs. Pure raisins, dried fruit, coffee, and chocolate on the nose. As if someome boiled dates, figs and raisins together and threw in coffee and chocolate. Extremely concentrated and sweet - too sweet to drink with anything but an eye dropper. As a taster's wine or an unusual ice cream syrup, 90 POINTS, less for actual drinkability. Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer
