Bodegas Tradicion Pedro Ximenez 20year

Member Review by Andy Lopez:

I took a tour of the solera in Jerez last year and brought this home with me. It is not for the uninitiated in fortified wines. The scent immediately brings me back to the bodega. It is a heavy taste of honey and raisins. It is thick, delicious, and decadent like a Pedro Ximenez should be. One of the finest Pedro's I've had.

Our cellar Bodegas Tradicion is among the other cellars of the Appellation of Origin Jerez – Xèrés – Sherry, the only one committed exclusively to the production of the oldest Sherries qualified by the Regulatory Board. All types of Sherry that we produce have been classified by the Guarantee of Origin Regulatory Board as V.O.S. – very old sherry or vinum optimum signatum – a wine which has been aged for more than 20 years, or V.O.R.S.– very old rare sherry vinum optimum rare signatum – a wine which has been aged for more than 30 years. Our cellar was built during the 19th century, and it is located in the historical district of Jerez, inside the area which was the walled city at the times of the Muslim Empire. With small windows, thick walls, sand soil, high ceilings and barely illuminated, our cellar is an excellent example of the architectural tradition of the beginning of the 19th century. Located in the highest part of Jerez and facing south east, as many of the cellars in the area, our bodega receives the influence of predominant winds, as well as minimum exposure to sun light and maximum humidity which ease the conservation and evolution of our wines.
