Ximénez-Spínola, Old Harvest medium dry 50cl
100% Pedro Ximenez
Bodegas Ximenez Spinola
Xeres De La Frontera / Spain
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
This is the archetypal summer aperitif. It pairs well with spicy Vietnamese or Thai food and the exotic character of the wine. It's also good with asparagus and almost any cheese.
Dry, decent tangy acidity balances the sweetness, so doesn't cloy, that quince-raisin flavour predominates with slight notes of gingerbread, broader, fatter in style to the palomino wines, with perhaps a little more texture, lovely and clean with a very long finish. It’s delicious, really friendly.
