  • Tasting notes
    This is a VORS Sherry: Vinum Optimum Rarum Signatum … thankfully it anglicises to Very Old Rare Sherry. VORS guarantees the wine's minimum average age is over 30 years, and this one is more than 40 year old PX. Sanchez Romate is a great family-owned small-medium Sherry House. Pedro Ximénez grapes are picked very ripe and then left out in the sun to attain a higher sugar concentration, yet the 16% alcohol belies the heady concentration of this wine. Pedro Ximénez ‘Old&Plus’ has been aged in solera for more than 35 years. Layers of deep prune fruit, with mace and sweet spices. Essence, for sure - but almost ethereal in its dancey, light-hearted finish. Remarkably refined PX. It's magically alive, still fresh with the green plumskin fruit the white PX grapes were redolent of at birth many, many years ago. The acidity is surprisingly peppy and the whole thing is alive in a way you just would not expect for something with a minimum average age of over 40 years.
