Product Information

Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence. Quality and continuity have always been the most important themes for this family run company now in its seventh generation.

Droderigo de Triana was a local man who sailed with Columbus to the new world. He was in the crow’s nest of the ship when the coast of what we now call the Americas, came into view. Pedro Ximénez Viejo ‘Triana’ is produced with grapes that are initially allowed to dry in the sun on straw mats, concentrating the sweetness of the grape juice. They are then pressed and vinified, before long ageing in soleras of American oak. The resultant wine is has a intense dark treacle colour and a rich and luscious texture.

Tasting Notes

Deep caramel in colour. Bursting with treacle, toffee, raisins and prunes. The palate is opulently sweet, a velvety texture with flavours of figs and caramel. The ultimate sticky wine.

How to Serve

Serve slightly chilled. Pedro Ximénez of this quality can either be served on its own as a luxurious after-dinner drink, or as a dessert wine. Try with chocolate puddings, or even poured over rum and raisin ice cream!

Accolades

“This rich, dark, deliciously sweet PX comes from a seventh generation of sherry makers in Jerez, where grapes are sun-dried on straw mats before being fermented, fortified and then aged. A good alternative to port at the end of a meal." John Clarke, The Independent, September 2014
