The grapes Pedro Ximenez are laid out in the sun for several days.
Fermentation is stopped, in order to keep the natural sugar of the grapes.
Afterwards this wine is fortified and then aged in the 'solera and criaderas' system.
Dark mahogany in colour and viscous.
Redolent of ripe fruit in the mouth, dried figs and roasted coffee beans.
Very sweet, velvety and soft in the mouth, with an extremely long aftertaste.
Food pairings: Ideal over vanilla ice-cream, with dark chocolate and blue cheeses such as Cabrales. It is also an excellent digestif.
