Fernando de Castilla Pedro Ximenez Antique NV

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the most exceptional of the small independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen, a Norwegian gone native with a passion for top quality sherry. In just a decade since then, Fernando de Castillo has earned a very high profile, and established itself as one of the outstanding producers in Jerez, consistently producing excellent sherry and winning a string of awards including a Decanter International Trophy in 2009 for its Amontillado, and in 2010 for its Antique Pala Cortado. This Antique Pedro Ximénez is very dark in colour with a deep bouquet of raisins. The nose is seductive with dozens of fleeting scents of coffee, liquorice, sweet tobacco, prunes, figs and tea, yet with surprising lightness and delicacy. This is an incredible, luscious and delicious sherry.
