) is a fortified wine
made with the grape variety of the same name.
Its production is based on the overripe of the grapes under the intense Summer sun in Andalusia. These extra ripened grapes are pressed, fermented and the resulting wine is aged under the traditional Sherry solera method
The next step is the fortification, i. e. , adding wine alcohol up to a total volume of 15%.
This fortified wine shows unique aromas of raisins, molasses and nuts, combined with a great smoothness and silkness on the palate.
Due to its high degree
of residual sugar (430 to 450 grams per litre), it is best served cold. It's a great wine to drink on its own or as a dessert in itself.
Obviously it pairs
perfectly with desserts (chocolate, ice cream, pastry, etc), but also, for example, with blue-veined cheeses.
In terms of its conservation
, it is noteworthy that, because of its long process of oxidation during production, the PX is very stable. Once opened, re-cover and store. The remaining wine will be prefectly preserved
in the bottle in a cool, dark place for a few months.
