There are not many wineries that can claim to plant only one varietal, let alone one that could easily be seen as being out of fashion, but that is precisely what Bodegas Ximénez-Spínola have done since 1729. Working solely with Pedro Ximénez to produce a selection of still wine, dessert wine, sherry and vinegar. Doing so, for so long, has made them masters of their trade and the wines they produce are simply magnificent. Vineyards are located in a prime location for growing Pedro Ximenez – between the towns of Jerez, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María. This area is made up of chalky soils near the mouth of Guadalquivir River, which was originally flooded by lagoons and salt marshes that were known as “Ligustino Lake”. After the lagoons and marshland dried out, sediments and fossils that were deposited there over millions of years became the perfect soil type for vine growing. An accumulation of moisture and long hours of sunlight on the vine formulated what is known as one of the best wine regions in the world. The winery produces a range of still wine, brandy, sherry and vinegar, all from the Pedro Ximenez grape variety.

An intense mahogany colour, intense raisin aromas and notes of roasted coffee and black chocolate. The palate is dominated by the raisined grapes with hints of dried fig. The concentrated fruit is perfectly assembled with the delicate roasted wood notes leaving an almost endless aftertaste and a hard to forget experience.

A clean gold colour with green highlights. The nose is marked by the French oak, which accentuates the raisin and prune aromas. A soft palate despite the high alcohol and a pleasant finish of ripe fruit and oak.

Golden in colour with an intense nose with the exceptional aromas expected of a late harvest: figs, raisins and prunes that blend with the pastry, typical of aging on lees. Light and intense in the mouth. Subtle, filling but not tiring. The acidity and natural sweetness play with ripe and fleshy fruit, leading to a long aftertaste in which the oak is so elegant.

A vibrant amber colour, ripe grape and raisin on the nose. Fresh palate with a velvet entry and well integrated acidity. Dates, figs, raisins and a lengthy finish.
