Pedro Ximenez Sherry, often abbreviated as PX Sherry, is a style of sweet Sherry that is renowned for its intense sweetness and rich, syrupy character.
Pedro Ximenez is obtained from the overly ripe grapes of the same name which are dried in the sun to obtain a must with an exceptionally high concentration of sugar. Its ageing process, which is exclusively oxidative, gives the wine a progressive aromatic concentration and greater complexity, whilst fully preserving the characteristc freshness of the variety.
One of the sweetest wines in the world, PX is about as sweet as things can get! Aromas of raisins, molasses, figs, toffee, caramel, nuts, the palate is incredibly thick, dense, with an oily texture, massive concentration and unsurpassed sweetness and prolonged length. The ultimate sweet wine!
