SHERRY, MADEIRA AND OTHER FORTIFIED

Sherry, Madeira and others - PEDRO XIMENEZ, San Emilio, Lustau. Sherry (Half bottle)

PEDRO XIMENEZ, San Emilio, Lustau. Sherry (Half bottle)

Alcohol Percentage: 17.5%
Area: Sherry comes from the area around Jerez in south west Spain
Grape Variety: Pedro Ximenez grapes, picked ripe then laid out in the sun to dry. Fermentation starts slowly then is stopped by fortification (the addition of alcohol)
Producer: Lustau is a great Sherry house, founded in 1896 and still family owned. Renowned for their 'almacenista' - wines from a very small batch, matured in a private house, named after the appropriate individual famil
Food Match: As stated above this is liquid 'sauce'. For the sweet-toothed it's a foil for Christmas pud. For many of us it's a gentle digestif with a strong coffee after dinner
Old Bridge Rating: PX is the grape normally used to blend with other wines to make the sweet styles. Some houses bottle some 'pure' PX - it is the richest, stickiest, most intense style of sweet wine in the world. Sip on its own or pour it (neat) over vanilla ice cream for a brilliant no-effort pudding
Press Reviews: Bronze Medal Decanter World Wine Awards 2010. Decanter coment: "Concentrated, persistent, with heady raisin and caramel"
