This is a peculiar winery, a little eccentric and unusual, a family affair created in 1922 although their roots can be traced back to the 19th century. The core of the winery is located inside an old electricity plant in Aguilar de la Frontera, south of Cordoba, in the heart of the Montilla-Moriles appellation and directed by collector, inventor and entrepreneur Antonio Sanchez. Our Pedro Ximenez wines stand out for their unrivalled artisanal nature: from their long ageing in oak casks to their handcrafted labels. An endless number of international awards and reviews endorse our wines which have already conquered many international markets. When you see a bottle from us, you will easily recognize it by its unmistakable artisanal footprint. This is not something unique to them, as the whole Montilla-Moriles is better known for its sweet, dark, unctuous Pedro Ximenez wines. All the wines they produce are of course fermented from Pedro Ximenez white grapes, but for the sweet wines the grapes are sun-dried, dehydrated into raisins, and the resulting wine is brown in color which gets darker as the wine ages and concentrates in barrel. The oldest examples are an opaque black with an amber rim as dense as motor oil.
Golden amber in colour. Intense oaky aromas reminding its ageing period in oak. Toasted nuts, caramel and iodine hints. Given its medium-long oxidative ageing period, it still leaves a nice feeling on the bouquet. The palate shows the oaky flavours stand out, wood and the oak tree. Toasted walnuts and hazelnuts, and tobacco leaf complete the tasting. Perfect balance between dry and semi-sweet wine. Full-on palate leaving a pleasant finish.
