Alvaro Domecq - NV - Jerez-Xérès-Sherry 1730 Pedro Ximenez - 375 ml.
Spain - Andalucía
Fortified - Vintage: NV - Size: 375 ml.
Mahogany colored. The aroma has a predominate scent of raisins; it also has notes of toasted sugar and slight hints of wood and vanilla. On the palate, it has an exquisite taste of raisins. It is sweet, without being sickly-sweet, warm and velvety. Notes of raisins and wood are present in the aftertaste.
The very sweet NV Pedro Ximenez 1730, produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes dried under the sun until half the weight is lost and aged in a solera, has 450 grams of residual sugar. It displays a very dark mahogany color, is very perfumed, showing fresher fruit aromas than in your average Pedro Ximenez. The nose mixes raisins, molasses and roasted coffee with a clear note of nutmeg and cloves in a dense, velvety, lively, clean palate.
