This wine was chosen for oak maturation for its incredibly intense fruit characteristics and vibrant youthfulness. Fresh and vibrant in its infancy, this wine will continue to improve in the oak barrel for many many years to come, gradually darkening in colour and developing intense toffee and molasses characters.
Please note that this is an unfiltered barrel sample and may develop a slight sediment over time, which is normal for fortified wines.
Colour: Amber with orange golden hues
Nose: Sweet nose of lifted marmalade, ripe apricots, peaches and cream.
Palate: Sweet and viscous, delicate yet vibrant maramalade and mandarin fruits linger in the mouth before a long, warm finish.
Drink: Once the Pedro Ximenez is filled we recommend to leave for a good 12 months before tasting. Patience is the key with this little beauty.
Residual Sugar: 120+g per litre.
