Product Description

Excusive bottling for Australia, 16.5 per cent alcohol, Jerez de la Frontera
Saca de Mayo 2013 (bottled May 2013). Serve in a white wine glass.
We started this collaboration because we believed it would result in a better, more complex P.X. than anything else on the market at this price point. Even then, the quality and complexity of this wine has well surpassed our expectations. Of course Navazos would never allow a release that would compromise its integrity but the aged complexity, balance and yumminess on offer here has to be tasted to be believed. The Equipo Navazos P.X. Gran Solera is the result of ageing pure, very sweet fortified Pedro Ximénez raisins musts - harvested from vineyards located in the towns of Montalbán, Montemayor and Puente Genil (around Montilla) - for an average of 20+ years, "... or maybe even 25 years, the solera system hardly allows to be more precise," says Jesús. It comes from a solera of 22 casks located in one of the finest bodegas at Jerez de la Frontera. Here it has been aged in a typical jerezano style (such as La Bota #36), that is, in casks filled only up to 5/6 of their capacity. This jerezano method results in a less fruity, more earthy, savoury and complex style of P.X. The source solera has come to be identified as "Solera Pedro Ximénez NO" and has never been bottled before. It's as unique as it is delicious.

"The NV P. X. Navazos Gran Solera May 2013, produced from Pedro Ximenez raisins, aged in the Jerez style (the botas are not filled up), originally fortified to around 18%, but with age the alcohol decreases, and at the current old age (15-20 years) it is 16.5% alcohol. The color is dark mahogany with a green-amber rim, a concentrated nose of raisins, dates, coffee, chocolate and spices with hints of mint that gives it a fresh profile. The palate reveals a thick, very dense wine, with penetrating roasted flavors of chocolate and tar. Very long, intense and persistent. These old sweet PX can last forever, and they even improve once the bottle is opened. It has 425 grams of residual sugar. Drink 2013-2025."
