Grapes of 100% Pedro Ximénez variety selected are solean between 8 and 16 days, once reached their optimal level are ground.
This wine is aged by the process of criaderas and soleras, in American oak boots. Solera with more than 30 years, is the jewel of these wines. Wine jet color, very dark and dense in its movement in glass, leaving a color "betadine" very marked and permanent.
It has a medium high aromatic intensity, but in addition, as long as it is aged, the evolution is very important since it intensifies the complexity of the aroma, incorporating more roasted touches, roasted, coffee, chocolate, and more background are the varietal aromas of raisins, dates,...
In the mouth it is very dense, a wine to chew it but that is not pasty since the acidity concentrated in his old age and the polyphenols provided initially with scraping and later of the wood, round and balance beautifully. Persistent reminiscence of figs, raisins, wood, balsamic touches like liquorice, ... very long.
If you have a bit of roscón de reyes you already know with which to pair, although I recommend it with cheese of leaf, roquefort, ... a magnificent combination of contrasts.
The brand is due to the avenue where the winery is located, a family business that since 1950 decided to produce wines, specializing strategically in the PX, which has given it an important place as a producer, for me, a surprise when I met them.
