Product Description

This is one of the best fortified wines made from Pedro Ximénez. It is crafted by Ximénez-Spínola, one of the most traditional wineries in Spain.

The Pedro Ximénez grapes were hand selected and then sun-dried until they became raisins. The process of sun drying the grapes into raisins limits the total yield of grapes by 30%.

Then this wine was aged in oak barrels with the traditional “criaderas y soleras” process.  Every year, a certain amount of wine is extracted from the bottom rack barrels and then the resulting wine is bottled unfiltered and un-stabilized.

This is a very limited production. The Ximénez-Spinola Pedro Ximénez bottles are always individually numbered with the year it was produced on every label.

We love to enjoy this Spanish fortified wine with foie gras, blue cheeses, chocolate based pastries, and we would highly recommend trying this fortified wine alone as well as it will seduce you with the intense sweetness of Jerez.

Additional Information
Additional Information

Ximénez-Spínola Pedro Ximénez has a a dark mahogany colour that is intense, bright, and accompanied by iodinated reflections.


This varietal Pedro Ximénez has a very intense and complex nose with a deep varietal character. Aromas of dried figs, coffee and cocoa, alongside nuances of dry fruit, flowers and honey. There is also a surprising background reminiscent of petrol, charcoal and smoke.


An extraordinary palate! This fortified sweet wine by Bodegas Ximenez-Spínola has a passage that is very long, fresh, and dense. The fruit expression in this wine balances wonderfully a big and elegant sweetness with some delicately bitter nuances. There is deep background of dry fruit, smoke, raisins and spices. Sweet, meaty, and dense. Excellent acidity that is very well-balanced. A final that is persistent and very, very long. This is a palate you will never forget.

Our personal opinion

Immense, potent, elegant, sweet, and complex. The Sherry wine Ximénez-Spinola Pedro Ximénez is a memorable fortified wine.
