Pedro Ximénez grapes are harvested and dried for up to 2 days in the hot September Spanish sun. Fernando de Castilla deals only in prestigious, premium wines. The sherries are all from individual soleras. They are bottled without blending, cold stabilization or filtration of any kind in order to preserve the subtlety, purity and distinctive aromas of these premium wines.
"Spicy, rich and full, with dried fruit and fruitcake, this is both complex and delicious" Sommelier Wine Awards 2014, Judges Comment
Very dark, almost black in colour. This is full of dark treacle, molasses and liquorice. Due to a lengthy ageing process this is incredibly complex. There is coffee, liquorice, sweet tobacco, prunes, figs, raisins, tea and a dozen other fleeting scents. An incredible, seductive, luscious and wonderful to drink sherry. Delicious with chocolate based desserts, ice creams and pastries as well as certain cheeses.
