El Maestro Sierra Pedro Ximenez 0.375 ltr
Beautiful PX Sherry in an intense, sweet style and a beautiful dark brown color. Aged in American oak according to the Solera system for more than 5 years. On the nose delicious aromas of toffee and orange. On the palate mocca, orange and dark chocolate. Goes very well with blue cheese, and with desserts with chocolate or coffee.
This sherry comes from vineyards north-northwest of Jerez, from the well-known chalky white Albariza terroirs, consisting of lime, clay and pebble. Alba means white, the bottom is therefore dazzling white (the sunlight is reflected) and very calcareous. In the extreme case, the soil contains as much as 80% lime. The limestone soil is very porous and absorbs rainwater well, allowing the vines to find moisture in the deep soil layers during the dry periods.
Bodega El Maestro Sierra was founded in 1830 by one of the best barrel makers of the time, master carpenter Jose Antonio Sierra. It wanted to make Sherry itself, which at that time, the 19th century, was mainly a noble affair. El Maestro Sierra is now without a doubt one of the top of the almacenistas and is owned by
one of the oldest stocks of sherry, a real treasure trove. Cellar master Juan Clavijo has been working here for more than 50 years according to the old traditions, where everything is done with the
hand goes. He determines which wines become a Fino, which an Amontillado, etc. The unique location in Jerez, the purchase of only the best grapes from the best farmers in Jerez and the very old stock of Sherry (soleras over 100 years old) make this house a a unique one.
