Reviews and Ratings

The process for producing the winery’s P.X. sweet wines is as follows:
The grapes are laid out on long porous mats to dry in the hot and dry sun for 10-12 days, where after the first five days, 90% of the bunches are turned over, one by one. The remaining 10% of the bunches are left unturned so that they maintain their natural acidity. The grapes are then pressed, and ferment over a two-month period to 8-9% alcohol, at which point a distillate made from the same PX pressings is added to bring the wine up to 17%. The finished wine is then left to settle in concrete vats for two years, before ageing in 50-150 year old American oak barrels. The wine is then bottled and released shortly thereafter. Incredibly, no sulphites are added during the fermentation process, or at bottling.
The last time the 1967 Don PX Selección was bottled and sold was 2001. In November 2016, a single barrel (#351) of this rare vintage was bottled and sold exclusively to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. Each bottle is hand numbered, and sealed with a wax cap. A total of 630 bottles were produced.

Estate bottled from 100% sun-dried Pedro Ximenez grapes, grown on the chalky white Albariza soils of Montilla-Moriles.

Once open, our PX is so stable that no difference or deterioration will be apparent after several months, if not years.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
