PX ‘Piedra Luenga’ DO, Bodegas Robles

£11.99

The PX is an award-winning sweetie, that’s dark mahogany in colour and full, fruity and lasting in the mouth.
The aromas are captivating and evocative of sun-ripened fruits, and dried figs.
In the mouth there are delicious raisiny/caramel flavours that border on the tropical. Opening the bottle doesn’t affect the lifespan of this wine – except that you won’t be able to resist it!

Description

PX ‘Piedra Luenga’ DO,  Bodegas Robles

The PX is an award-winning sweetie, that’s dark mahogany in colour and full, fruity and lasting in the mouth.
The already ripe grapes are dried on esparto grass mats in the hot Andalucian sun until they reach the optimum level of sweetness (at which point they are almost raisins) — and then crushed.
The aromas are captivating and evocative of sun-ripened fruits, and dried figs.
In the mouth there are delicious raisiny/caramel flavours that border on the tropical. Opening the bottle doesn’t affect the lifespan of this wine – except that you won’t be able to resist it! Drink on its own as a Mediterranean pick-me-up, as a dessert wine or with blue cheese.
