Gold International Wine & Spirits Competition (UK) Deep brown colour ; concentrated aromatics of dates, chocolate, roasted coffee with rose petal note giving added interest ; great palate of dried fruits and nuts, lime zest accent, bracing acidity holding the flavours in check, lingering. Superb!

95 International Wine Challenge Plenty of Christmas pudding character. Orange peel, nutty hazelnut character. Lots of wonderful muscated fruits - super sweet but decent balance.

93 The Wine Advocate Completing the line of very old wines there is one sweet wine, the NV Pedro Ximénez Vieja Solera, a VORS produced in the traditional way, with partial fermentation of the Pedro Ximénez grapes that have previously been dried out in the sun and fortified to 16% alcohol. The wine has 440 grams of residual sugar. It has a textbook nose of Pedro Ximénez from Jerez, very fragrant and open, with notes of candied orange, dried apricots, prunes and dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied and very sweet with lowish acidity. You can have an open bottle and have a sip from time to time, as the bottle will keep - and even improve - once opened.
