Pedro Ximénez is made with the type of grape that is used in the making of wines of the same name in the Designation. As a result of characteristics of the grapes and the condition of the harvest, a sweet wine is produced. Using the same ageing methods as those of solera wines and by means of oxidative ageing, these wines are very special. The age gives the wine very fresh and intensively sweet raisiny notes, without it being cloying. At the production of a PX it is the special that the grapes are dried to raisins on bast mats in the hot sun of Andalusia before their processing. So the PX sweetness exclusively consists of a pure fruit sugar.
If the bottle is unopened, this wine will remain in perfect condition and even improve with time. Once the bottle has been opened, the wine will remain completely stable for up to 12 month, as long as it is kept in the vertical position and out of direct light (16-18°C).
