Tasting Notes: With a final average age of more than 30 years, this stunning Vinum Optimum Rare Signatum PX (Pedro Ximenez, the grape varietal) Sherry is an incredible way to finish your Christmas feast. It will take on anything you care to match it with including decadent Christmas cake, butter tarts, ice cream, or whatever sugary temptation you could imagine. Eye: Arresting. Unlike almost any other wine you've ever seen: molasses, black coffee, date juice rim. Nose: heady with sultanas, dates, dried figs, Christmas spices, rum and raisin ice cream. Palate: sensationally smooth, with a wallop of demerara sugar, dried figs, sultanas, candied nuts, and an amazing acidity that somehow balances the overwhelming density. Packs a 'wow' factor like almost nothing else. If you've never tried PX sherry, this is the one to completely spoil you forever!
Price: $39.99 350 ml
