VIRGEN DE LA ESPERANZA Pedro Ximénez Reserva de Familia NV
For this one you’re going to want to wheel out the gooey chocolate brownie churros with hot chocolate sauce Black Forest gâteau treacle tart Christmas pudding mince pies Eccles cakes or pancakes. But it’s equally as wonderful poured over vanilla ice cream or served alongside the most potent of cheeses. The syrupy and unctuous Pedro Ximénez Reserva de Familia is made from dried grapes and is aged for 24 months in oak; it drips with dark chocolate marron glacé toffee treacle dates figs festive mincemeat toast and wood smoke.
Located not far from the flamingo-filled Laguna de Fuente de Piedra the family-run Bodegas Málaga Virgen have over 130 years’ experience making sweet liqueur wine from sun-dried grapes. Despite being their very top wine this PX was described by Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages as being “very good value for its price”. Now where’s that pudding?
