Special features of the wine:
Elaboration Ximénez Spínola Old Harvest
It is incorporated into our Solera of 1964. 100% Pedro Ximénez wine of Oxidative aging, "unique piece" in the entire Marco de Jerez. White variety that behaves "dry" with notes very similar to "Palo Cortado" and "Oloroso", but with the subtlety and elegance of a grape that has never been bottled with this particular preparation. It is not the typical sherry wine of oxidative aging, in fact the alcoholic perception is minimal thanks to the fact that the degree is obtained fermentatively and by concentration in barrel. For this reason and to avoid refermentations, the contribution of raisin juice that softens the wine and leaves sugars unfermented, is made very carefully every year, contributing very few liters per barrel in aging, until reaching in the last year the 45 grams per liter.
What kind of wine is Xímenez Spínola Old Harvest
The selected barrels are assembled a year before being bottled in a proportion in which Oxidative Crianza notes predominate, but in which the edges of the oak are avoided, following criteria of sensorial tasting, in order not to distort the equilibrium end reached. The objective is to achieve a balanced harmony between old age, oak tannins, fermentative alcohol and the characteristics of the Pedro Ximénez variety.
