The ideal wine for the uninitiated. This wine, carefully created by our winemaker, breaks moulds as the blend of our youngest Pedro Ximénez -with its fresh raisin notes- and our much older dry Oloroso results in a highly original and authentic combination. The complexity of flavours of this wine is surprising and the texture is, at the very least, seductive. At the same time, it's a very pleasant wine to drink and a perfect companion for many dishes, ranging from the most obvious desserts to more daring combinations. It is the perfect sweet wine for people who only drink wines that aren't sweet. This unusual wine was the first wine in its class to have twenty-five years of ageing, endorsed by its VOS rating. Tradición Cream: unique quality, limited production.

Supremely thick, with a syrupy feel to the buckwheat, toasted brown bread, warm date and molten chocolate notes. Not tiring or top-heavy, this offers singed walnut, almond, fig paste and Turkish coffee details that impart energy through the finish. Drink now. 500 cases made, 5 cases imported.

The NV Tradicion Pedro Ximenez 20 anos VOS, produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes and aged in a solera for an average of 23-25 years (which was originally purchased from Domecq & Harveys), is bottled 'young' to preserve the character of the grapes and make it more drinkable. The alcohol is also kept at the allowed minimum of 15%. It lacks the rancio notes of others, and is looking for the balance between age and fruit, raisins, dates, dried plums, cappuccino coffee, and licorice while following the clean and precise profile of all the wines they produce. The palate is equally balanced and elegant. This little monster has around 420 grams of sugar, and should be served at 12-14? C. The wine gets more focused with a little time in the glass. Drink 2013-2018.
