Type of Wine: fortified wine
Principal grape variety: Pedro Ximenez
Ximenez-Spinola Pedro Ximenez too old: Pedro Ximenez grapes produced raisined, of which 30 liters of wine are obtained per 100 kilos of grapes. Each year selected items are embotellas, aged by the traditional system of criaderas and solera own frame of Jerez. The mixture or "blended" wines of different ages, they age in staggered structure of American oak barrels for several years until the Committee Tasting and Rating of the cellar selected wines are finally being awarded the seal "Ximenez-Spinola". In the wine tasting, the most important of Ximenez-Spinola Pedro Ximenez is to appreciate its aromatic complexity and organoleptic characteristics. After its mahogany color, own wine raisined when exposed to sunlight, the natural dehydration, increases sugars, acids and minerals, which allow despite its natural density, not be heavy on the palate. Aromas raisiny, mixed with roasted notes, typical of the soleus, sweet and velvety on the palate due to the concentration of natural sugars and oxidative aging. I came recommended to take as a dessert wine, although the first sips be taken alone, to appreciate without altering its bouquet.
If this generous wine is stored properly, you can maintain its properties and characteristics for decades. The operating temperature is 14 degrees.
