Fresquito PX, Vino de Tinaja, Montilla-Moriles

£12.00
SKU:

Distinctive and unusual Spanish white, made from Pedro Ximenez, which is more usually used to make a sweet syrupy style of sherry.

This is altogether a different animal - pretty well bone dry and nutty with a touch of fino sherry about it it though it actually comes not from Jerez but the neighbouring denomination of Montilla-Moriles. The word Tinaja refers to the traditional earthenware jars in which the wine is aged (also pictured on the label) which accounts for the slightly oxidative - for which read deliciously nutty/almondy - style

Great wine to drink with tapas, especially jamon iberico, olives and anchovies.
