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.

Fun fact: The label depicts the nobility's hunt for the fox (Maestro Sierra). The month and year of bottling are stated on the back label of each bottle. For even more fun Sherry Facts, look here .

Appellation: Denominación de Origen Jerez-Xérès Sherry. This sherry is made from Pedro Ximenex grapes.

After opening, if stored in a dark and cool place, it can be kept for another 3 months.

Vineyard for El Maestro Sierra Pedro Ximenez 0.375 ltr

More than a century ago, there was a 'cooper' named Jose Antonio Sierra, who, thanks to his barrel workshop in the La Merced district of Jerez, was very knowledgeable about the specific craft of Sherry wine. He made the large oak barrels where the wineries in the area aged their Sherry. Jose was known as an excellent cooper, but he had a dream: to make his own sherry. That was by no means common in 1830. The bodegas were in the hands of a few noble 'Sherry families'. But Jose persisted and founded a modest bodega in the historic center of the town of Jerez de la Frontera. This is where the bodega El Maestro Sierra still stands today, charming, discreet and proud. The time that has passed has only confirmed the skills of this barrel maker. Some of its casks (American oak casks specifically for making sherry) are nearly 200 years old. They retain its carved signature and feature the bodega's finest centennial wines.

Today El Maestro Sierra combines traditional winemaking with an artisanal character. The bodega is still family-owned and that family continues to mature, bottle and export the Jerez-Xérès-Sherry D.O, the governing body to which the bodega belongs. The Bodega ages its wines in the best American oak barrels, using the traditional solera system in its own cellars.

Time and the core idea of ​​quality over quantity have turned El Maestro Sierra wines into little works of art; wines of extreme age and quality and recognized all over the world. That is the summary of the philosophy of the winery which, after management since 1976 by the exceptional figure of Mrs. Pilar Plá Pechovierto, is now run by a new director, her daughter Maria del Carmen Borrego Plá. In the past ten years, this winery has been one of the top 100 wineries in the world twice, in 2011 and 2017.
