Why We Love It:
It doesn’t get more decadent than this.
Almost as much a dessert in a glass as an accompaniment to delicious sweet treats and full-flavoured cheeses, Lustau Pedro Ximinez is a sweet style of Sherry made entirely from Pedro Ximinez grapes. Lucious, viscous and rich, this mouth-coating and complex tipple offers abundant aromas and flavours of fig, prunes, baked apples, toasted nuts, raisins and exotic spices.
It is delicious next to rich and decadent desserts like sticky toffee pudding or creme brulee – but it also pure magic alongside pungent and mature blue cheeses. Want to add something special to an everyday pleasure? Try a wee drizzle of this remarkable Sherry over French Vanilla ice cream.
There isn’t much of this rare treat available – place your order today before it’s gone.
