  • Barbadillo Pedro Ximénez Jerez-Xérès-Sherry la Cilla NV


    Amazing - but intensely sweet and thick. Could easily serve on its own as a dessert. Loads of raisins and other dried and stewed fruits. Wine maker's notes could not be more correct - 'Sweet sherry produced by the traditional system of sun drying the Pedro Ximenez grapes. Elegant dark mahogany colour with an amber touch. Wonderfully cloying with... Read More
