Ximenez-Spinola Pedro Ximénez Cosecha 2018

$56.00 $48.00

Appearance: Clean bright almost pure amber with brassy golden highlights and some visible viscosity.

Nose: Bursting with aromas of sun dried PX though lighter than the normal version as the grapes, while very ripe, are not so intensely sun dried and there are few if any fig and date aromas making it very grapey with hints of overripe apple, peach and apricot and gently tangy with traces of esparto and some grapeskin texture. It smells fantastic and is virtually unique.

Palate: Sweet, yes, but nowhere near as sweet as normal PX and much lighter too, both in wight and alcohol. The acidity level is perfect to carry through the flavour, mitigate the sweetness and give a real freshness to the wine. The aforementioned dried fruit flavours give off some of their texture creating a gentle chewiness and there is the faintest honeyed note yet the wine is clean, fresh complex and uncloying with great length, and quite possibly a long life ahead in bottle. Delicious.
