Description

This fortified Pedro Ximénez was made from grapes grown specifically for us by a number of traditional Barossa grape growers. Pedro Ximénez are amongst the last grape varieties to be harvested each vintage in the Barossa Valley. The grapes are hand harvested, crushed, and after maceration for 4 days, fortified with brandy spirit, pressed and matured in French oak hogsheads. Aged using a Solera system, this blended wine has an average age of 7 years. Careful consideration is given to creating nutty characters with a background of freshness.

100 Best Australian Wines 2017/18

“The other wine to look out for in the TF range is the unhinged NV Pedro Ximènez. This wine is a 100 Best Alumni and I often forget to mention but it really is a wickedly decadent pudding wine with all of the drunken raisin and fig notes you crave from this style of sweetie.”
Matthew Jukes



Decanter TOP 10 Australian Wines

“Renowned for producing fine wines in Jerez, Pedro Ximènez (or PX) can really excel in other part of the world. Intense marmalade aromas with some sweet spice and dried figs. The palate is lusciously rich with some pure marmalade and dried figs characters, very long, sweet and rich finish but with a good freshness.”
Decanter, Top 10 Australian Wines


“This is a lighter style of PX than the dark treacle-like wines of Spain, and with a bit of time in the bottle – this blend from vintages from 1997 to 2002 was bottled in 2004- it has developed well. Blended with brandy spirit, delicious orange marmalade, coffee, old leather, raisins, fig and spice flavours lead to a satin-smooth, sweet yet fresh palate. It finishes with rancio complexity and persistent orange marmalade flavours.”
Ben Thomas, The Weekly Review
