The grapes were naturally sun-dried for about 8 days. (To produce 1 litre of this sweet white wine, three kilograms of sun-dried grapes are required.) Then the wine was fermented and aged for 12 months in stainless steel tanks.
After that, this varietal sweet Pedro Ximénez was transferred into American oak barrels, and aged for 20 years. As a result of natural water evaporation, the alcohol content of the wine went from 15% to 17%.
The exceptional Don PX 1999 Gran Reserva is crafted by the Toro Albalá winery, arguably the most renowned producer of PX and Amontillados from Córdoba.
The sweet wine Don PX 1994 Gran Reserva is deep brown with a iodine rim.
Very complex, this Pedro Ximénez carries some aromas of coffee, bitter chocolate, liquorice, tobacco and sweet spices. On the background, notions of aromatic herbs, fruit compote and a subtle note of black olives.
Powerful, sweet and venerable. This PX of Toro Albalá is velvety bodied and round, with a very good acidity, a marvelous texture and an endless finish with remembrances of prunes, cocoa, spices, tobacco, figs, aromatic herbs and dry fruit.
|Our personal opinion||
The sweet wine Don PX 1999 Gran Reserva is exactly what has sometimes been described, quite aptly in our opinion, as a "meditation wine".
