Although most Sherry producers offer PX wines, there is, in fact, very little pedro ximénez planted in Jerez, Sanlúcar and El Puerto. Most of the vines are in Montilla-Moriles, where the grapes can produce both super-sweet and concentrated wines, as well as Finos that are both very dry and very ripe. This Oloroso, aged more than 30 years in botas, is intensely saline and earthy, with complex nutty flavors. It is very dry, yet generous and ripe, a vibrant wine that would go well with braised lamb.
The NV Oloroso Gran Barquero is produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes aged oxidatively in a solera system for 25-30 years on average. It displays a dark amber color and a complex nose of cigar ash, candied apricots and roasted nuts. The palate is ample, velvety, with good structure, without the rusticity some attribute to the wines of Montilla, and very slightly off-dry, which makes it very approachable. (LG)
