Put this in the fridge with all the chains around it and the big padlock that you only have the key for. We wouldn’t blame you for not sharing this because we wouldn’t either. Up the nose comes starfruit, old books, bruised apple, yellow pears and in the mouth is enough texture and interest to block the Suez canal. Boss level white wine!
Juicy, Savoury, Textured

MEET THE PRODUCERS
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.
Focused solely on Pedro Ximénez, these are experts in their field.
