Equipo Navazos Casa Del Inca 2015 Pedro Ximenez

 

This is another historic style that the Navazos team brought back. It’s a wine inspired by the time, many moons ago, when Pedro Ximénez was often a vintage wine and released without extended ageing, and therefore without the resulting rancio characters that such maturation brings.

This comes from the stocks of Pérez Barquero in the D.O. Montilla-Moriles and is derived from late-harvested and dried PX grapes from one of Montilla’s best single vineyards. Fortification is carried out only with top-quality, wine-based spirits. After 18 months resting in the traditional, large, cone-shaped amphorae of the type that has been used in Montilla-Moriles for centuries (locally called tinajas or conos), the wine is released as an ultra-pure, viscous, incredibly intense and naturally sweet dessert wine.

For those new to this wine, this isn’t your opaque, black, rancio style of PX. Instead, you can expect a bright and perfumed, amber/brown coloured wine of wonderful vibrancy, fruitiness and freshness with dried raisin, leatherwood honey, cold tea, nutmeg, molasses and fresh resin notes. Of course, it is very sweet (415 grams per litre of natural sugar if you don’t mind!) yet it’s balanced by just the right amount of acidity. The wine can be utilised in exactly the same way as an aged PX; served with coffee, tea or with chocolate desserts. Like Navazos’ solera PX, it will keep for eons in the fridge.

“The young and sweet 2015 Pedro Ximénez Casa del Inca from Montilla-Moriles is unoaked, matured in concrete vats that are traditional in the region, and wants to show the character of the sun-dried fruit. It’s bottled with 15% alcohol, as the must is fortified, first to 12% and later to 15%, and with some 415 grams of residual sugar. It’s very sweet with aromas of molasses, honey and maple syrup, with a dense palate, great concentration and lowish acidity.” 90 points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
