SHERRY WINE PEDRO XIMÉNEZ TRADICION (V.O.R.S)

pedro-ximenez-bodegas-tradicion

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: A very dark iodized colour, with ochre edges and very dense.
Nose: Aromas of raisins, figs and plums with memories of liquorice and toasted elements. Hints of cattail and straw with a touch of sun dried tomato. Taste: Very soft, dense, silky and oily. When sensed in the mouth and throat it is not heavy urging another sip. It has a long aftertaste of chocolate, liquorice, coffee and toffee.

PAIRING
Dessert: we could say that as this is such a sweet and rich wine, it could almost be a dessert in itself without the need for anything else. It combines marvellously with coulant and soufflé type chocolates. Very pleasant with Christmas sweets, non-acidy creamy desserts and surprising with soft blues cheese such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Treviso, and goat’s cheese such as Ibores or Grazalema. By the glass: for those who enjoy an after meal conversation, this wine could be the perfect companion. It is also a great ally of the strong Havana cigar.
