Colour: Brilliant clear amber. Nose: Clean, light and superbly stylish, it is a pure raisin wine that combines a full aroma of raisins and dates with a pleasant fruitiness, a honey backbone and a slight hint of orange rind. Palate: Rich in dried fruit nuances and toasty hints of skins, with fresh overtones, rosemary honey. Unctuous palate.

Wine AdvocateThis 2013 Pedro Ximenez de Anada wine is made from 100% hand-harvested Pedro Ximenez grapes that are dried on mats in the sun, and then fermented in stainless steel, with the fermentation being halted by the addition of liquor. It is then aged six months in 500-liter American oak barrels. A medium amber color is followed by notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, honeysuckle, Chinese black tea and marmalade. This sweet, rich, heady, after-dinner wine should drink well for a decade or more.

Wine SpectatorIntense flavors of dried orange, dark chocolate, burnt caramel and bitter herbs give this rich wine an exotic character. Offers a striking balance of bitter and sweet elements, with notable heat from alcohol. Distinctive and forceful. Drink now. 1,000 cases made.
