The reason? It is one of the very few unfortified varietal Pedro Ximénez wines made outside of Sherry country.
The 60-year-old vines were harvested by hand. Once in the cellar, they were macerated with the skins and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 36 days. After completing malolactic fermentation, this white wine from Terra Alta was aged for 6 months on lees.
Finally, the white wine Estones PX 2020 was stabilized, clarified and filtered before bottling.
Intense and characterful, this white wine aged on lees will pair excellently with smoked foods and creamy cheeses.
The white wine Estones PX is medium yellow with some greenish glints.
This varietal Pedro Ximénez from Terra Alta has an intriguing, ever-evolving nose. Ripe peaches and apricots, together with some earthy remembrances, a leesy note, and some brushstrokes of honey, pastry and aromatic herbs.
Smooth and creamy, this wine from Mas Sersal has a distinctively dry/saline note and a crisp acidity. All in all, a very original profile. Long finish with some earthy, honeyish and herbal remembrances.
