  • $22.50

The wish is to nurture the unique character of these extremely old (X.O.) Pedro Ximinez vines, to capture them perfectly from barrel. The 'Legacy of the Barossa' is vigneron and lifelong champion of old vines and fortified wines, Carl Lindner. Traditionally grown and vinified, the now rare Pedro Ximinéz was first fortified by his family in 1944 and now averages 30 years of age. This wine is hand blended and bottled without fining or filtration. The total residual sugar is 186 grams per liter...though the high acidity makes this a remarkable wine for a cheese course or savory dessert. The bouquet immediately proclaims the age and class of the wine. Freshly toasted pecans, figs, fresh cream toffee and creme brulee with English breakfast tea, mandarin citrus peel and hints of maple syrup. The palate is sweet and rich with an aged orange peel and honey marmalade middle with candied fruit, citrus/apricot and toffee flavors that flow to a drying finish thanks to the extremely complex and fresh 'rancio', and almost electric, piecing intensity.
