Pedro Ximenez ( frequently referred to simply as PX ) is a grape that produces many of Spain's finest sweet Sherries. El Candado is made from Pedro Ximenez grapes which once harvested are left out in the sunshine for at least two weeks. The grapes dehydrate naturally, absorbing the unique and unmistakable flavours of the Mediterranean sun as they turn into raisins. The sugar levels rise, and through the Solera and Criadera maturation system the wines gain incredible deep, rich flavours of figs, raisins, molasses, nuts and chocolate. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.
