This is another historic style that the Navazos team brought back. It’s a wine inspired by the time when Pedro Ximénez was often a vintage wine and released without extended ageing.
This comes from the stocks of Pérez Barquero in the D.O. Montilla-Moriles and is derived from late-harvested and dried PX grapes from one of Montilla’s best single vineyards. Fortified with only top-quality, wine-based spirits. Rested for 18 months in the traditional, large, cone-shaped amphorae of the type that has been used in Montilla-Moriles for centuries. Released as an ultra-pure, viscous, incredibly intense and naturally sweet dessert wine.
For those new to this wine, this isn’t your opaque, black, rancio style of PX. Instead, you can expect a bright and perfumed, amber/brown coloured wine of wonderful vibrancy, fruitiness and freshness with dried raisin, leatherwood honey, cold tea, nutmeg, molasses and fresh resin notes.
