Production: This is a hand-crafted natural sweet wine obtained from 100% Pedro Ximénez grapes harvested by hand and sundried on the ground on food mats, on the streets between the vines known as “camadas”. Only 300 kilos of raisins are obtained for each ton of fresh grapes. Once the grapes arrive at the winery and pressed, only 200 liters of must are obtained for each ton of fresh grapes, resulting in an extremely low final yield. The fermentation is taken to 13% of alcohol in open French Oak barrels, slowing down the alcoholic conversion process by covering the barrels without leaving any air, a 100% fermentative process which maintains the fruity aromas of the grapes and avoids any possibility of oxidation. Each bottle comes numbered individually as a guarantee of their authenticity.
Tasting Notes: Intense, clean and bright gold color. On first instance it displays aromas of meaty fruit, peach, apricot, ripe plum, some green apple and pear aromas are noticeable when swirling the wine and a slight hint of bitter almond. On the palace is all harmonious from beginning to end, a display of different nuances of aromas combined with a remarkable acidity. The aftertaste is long and delicious, pleasant and fruity.
Notes: Delicious upon release, although it has an outstanding potential longevity. Under optimal conditions it can exceed 50 years
