Equipo Navazos ' PX Gran Solera 25 + Year Old' 375ml
Another absolute killer release from Equipo Navazos aka the most important sherry producer in the world.
The aged complexity, balance and yumminess on offer here has to be tasted to be believed. The Equipo Navazos PX Gran Solera is the result of ageing the pure, very sweet, fortified must of Pedro Ximénez raisins--harvested from vineyards located in the towns of Montalbán, Montemayor and Puente Genil (around Montilla)--for an average of 20+ years, "... or maybe even 25 years, the solera system hardly allows us to be more precise," says Jesús.
It comes from a solera of 22 casks located in one of the finest bodegas at Jerez de la Frontera. Here it has been aged in a typical Jerezano style (such as La Bota #36), that is, in casks filled only up to 5/6 of their capacity.
This Jerezano method results in a less fruity, earthier, savoury and complex style of PX. The source solera has come to be identified as "Solera Pedro Ximénez NO" and has never been bottled before. It's as unique as it is delicious.
