Valdespino Pedro Ximenez El Candado CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pedro Ximenez Jerez Spain
Valdespino is one of the most treasured Sherries. El Candado is made from Pedro Ximenez grapes which are left out in the sunshine for at least a fortnight after harvest. The grapes slowly dehydrate, absorbing the unique and discernible characters of the Mediterranean as they turn into raisins. The sugar levels rise and the fruit is crafted into a wine showing an intense mahogany colour and alluring bouquet of aged rancio fruit. The palate is velvety rich, endowed with layers of complexity, remarkably smooth with a long and clean, exquisite aftertaste.
