JEREZ SECO SERIE 2

Ximénez Spínola

IN STOCK
Grapes Pedro Ximenez
Origin Spain, Sherry
ABV 17%

Working only with PX, Ximénez Spinola display great technical skill and brilliance … absolute masters of their craft! This bottling is from a combination of single vintage casks (2009/2013/2015/2019) blended together in 9 new barrels, matured for a year and then bottled. The initial fermentation was in French oak with wild yeasts, followed by ageing in American oak with some casks developing flor, whilst some not, giving incredible complexity from both biological and oxidative ageing. Benefiting from a recent change to DO regulations, there has been no fortification. Alcoholic fermentation to 15% is followed by oxidative ageing and evaporation, resulting in a final ABV of 17%.

'A distinct Palo Cortado, with lovely amber colour, notes of oak and a luscious rounded palate with no evidence of alcohol. Being PX rather than Palomino the palate is fuller and rounder without a characteristic tang but has beautiful integration and a lovely nutty finish. Reminiscent of a mellow bourbon, with all its complexity, depth and generosity yet without the whack of alcohol. A truly memorable wine'.
