Bodegas Tradición Pedro Ximenez VOS 20 Years
The NV Tradicion Pedro Ximenez 20 anos VOC, produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes, has matured for an average of 23-25 years in a solera (originally purchased from Domecq & Harveys) and is bottled relatively 'young' to maintain the character of the grapes. The alcohol is also kept at the permitted minimum of 15%. The taste is equally balanced and elegant. Clear intense fruit aromas in the nose; raisins, figs and plums, a little licorice and a little brioche. On the palate, the 20-year-old PX is silky smooth and even slightly creamy. It has a long finish of chocolate, liquorice, coffee and toffee. This beautiful PX has about 420 grams of sugar and has a perfect balance between the fruit and the sweet, which makes it a great after-dinner drink and combines wonderfully with culinary chocolates, soufflé or with blue cheeses such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Treviso and is a good ally with a Cuban cigar.
Bodegas Tradición is one of Spain's leading sherry producers. The sherry is made according to the traditional solera system, is given an unprecedented long wood aging and is produced in small numbers. The logo of Bodegas Tradición shows a man pouring the wine manually, this is not a lie. During the production process, work is carried out according to traditional methods, without the use of machines. The result of the manual mixing of the wines and the long wood aging is a top quality product with the same, consistent quality every year. No coloring agents are added to the sherries and they are not filtered or heated. This is 'the real thing', sherry as sherry should be. Bodegas Tradición was founded in 1998 by Joaquín Rivero. At first glance, this seems like a relatively new winery from Jerez, but the origin of this house is 'Bodega CZ, J.M. Rivero'. This bodega dates back to the year 1650 and is known as the oldest sherry bodega in Spain. Bodegas Tradición is therefore the successor of a bodega that still did business with the royal houses of Spain and Portugal. The name Tradición refers to a return of the traditional style of sherry, but also to the continuity of the family business.
