This wine is the epitome of why people say that PX is often the equivalent of motor oil in the wine world. This stuff is freakin insanely rich, smells like baked down raisins and figs, and the palate has the most sumptuous texture.. just caressing every tastebud until quite frankly - you’re uncomfortable with how much you’re enjoying this.

NV Currants, figs and dates. Awesome balance, sweet and complex. Paired this with a cheese classic from Belgium Hervé Pikant. #px #pedroximenez

Awe inspiring PX from one of the most relevant producers. Super sweet with so much savory complexity underneath.

Together with Lustau's "San Emilio Solera Reserva" this is one of the most concentrated PX I have come across. At around 400 g/l of residual sugar this is liquid dessert.

Dry, hazelnuts, walnut, tobacco, raisin. Bring this against fine food and it would shine. Olives and salumi as well.
