From Equipo Navazos: 'The very thin skin of the Pedro Ximénez variety favors the fast dehydration of the berries during the asoleo (sundrying) process, which makes it ideal for the production of raisiny sweet wines. The Montilla-Moriles region (especially in Montalbán, Montemayor, and Puente Genil) concentrates today virtually all the production of sweet PX musts that will later be aged in the different Andalusian winemaking areas. Casa del Inca, in Montilla, is the former residence of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, where he wrote most of his literary production. Its present functions—after restoration—are related to the city’s winemaking tradition. Late-harvested grapes, several full turns of exposure to the late summer sun, and careful extraction at different pressure levels by means of powerful hydraulic presses are the key to the musts’ original quality. Another key element is the subsequent fortification with top-quality wine-based spirits. Third and last as far as vintage PXs not undergoing barrel ageing are concerned is time: one and a half years resting in tinajas or conos, the traditional cone-shaped vessels used in Montilla-Moriles for centuries now.'
Dos Palmas is a selection of two casks with still-active flor from an old fino solera of 150 casks averaging 8 years of age. Incredibly memorable for its abundant bouquet of dried apple and golden raisin with silky notes of almond oil and demure florals that continue on to enrich the refined yet electric palate of soft citrus peel, aloe, green almond, and yellow currants. A rare and wonderful pleasure with roasted fish or game with complex combinations of herbs and spices. Ariana Rolich
