Valdespino Pedro Ximenez Sherry
Made from the Pedro Ximenez grapes, once harvested, they are left out in the sunshine for at least two weeks. This causes water to evaporate from the grape turning it to raisin and the sugar levels to rise. The wine that is made is then matured using the ‘Solera and Criadera’ system. The sherry is added above previous vintages in this barrel system and is therefore labelled Non Vintage.
Valdespino was founded in 1430 and is one of Spain’s oldest sherry producers. The bodega is located in Jerez de la Frontera and produces a range of sherries. From 1883 it has been an official provider to the Spanish monarchy.
