Jerez, SPAIN

$479.88 Dozen
ABV: 18%
Closure: Cork
One that proclaims to be the crème de la crème of PX’s – and if you’re not entirely convinced, this sherry comes with its own padlocked top – the reason for this is to stop the midnight sippers in their tracks. Yes you need a key to unlock the padlock! A contemporary chastity belt!

With six centuries of sherry production under their belts, Valdespino can lay claim to being one of the oldest sherry houses in the region. In a process called Soleo, after harvesting, the grapes are sun dried for two weeks to concentrate the sugar and turn the grapes into raisins. After partial fermentation of the must the wine is fortified and then enters the soleras where it’s aged for between 10-12 years in American oak casks.

A Magnificent Black Sherry

Deep sienna brown colour with deep olive green hue. Wonderful nose filled with the aroma of toffee, molasses, spice and brandied ripe raisins. The palate is a viscous treasure with its rich luscious texture and oil like consistency. Totally mouthfilling flavours of spice, honey, toffee and crushed dried raisins fill the mouth. Incredible length – perfect harmony with clean finish and exceptionally long aftertaste of treacle, caramel, honey and raisins. Perfect with chocolate cake and a must with the Christmas pudding.
