Pedro Ximenez (PX to its mates) is akin to liquid molasses, and it goes great with chocolate desserts. This offering from Sanchez Romate is a knockout example of the style, and shows lots of rich, plush aromas of dried figs and dates, dark chocolate and coffee, and licorice spice on the nose. The palate is thick, sweet and syrupy, with more dried fruit and spice flavours, and the acid cleaning up the finish to leave mocha and spice at the back of the tongue. Awesome stuff best enjoyed in small amounts.
Top quality, small producer with a distinctive ‘swishing’ effortless palate style ... kinda like a Mark Waugh cover drive, but with no
lazy edges! They also produce arguably Spain’s finest brandy, and excellent vinegars.
Raisiny, prune juice, chocolate dates—rich, sweet, viscous, spice and through-line, gentle grip to off dry finish.
