Made by drying Pedro Ximénez grapes on esparto grass mats for one-and-a-half to three weeks, so increasing the wine’s sugar concentration. Cardenal Cisneros is aged for over 15 years in oak casks.

Clear, deep chestnut brown.
Blackened fruitcake, dates and raisins with coffee and chocolate.
Very rich and sweet with some balancing acidity. More blackened fruitcake, dates and intense raisiny fruit with some dark chocolate.
Rich dates, raisins and chocolate finish.
This superb Pedro Ximénez has attractive date flavours, along with intense raisiny fruit and hints of dark chocolate.
