PX Alfaraz 16%, Aecovi

Dense black through brown amber to yellow rim, very viscous.
Cinder toffee, caramel and pasa, an interesting phenolic/fruity nose (remember the stems can't be separated from the sun-dried grapes) with some character and charm. Lots of dates and figs and intensely sweet.
Extremely viscous, cinder toffee and hints of syrup and molasses, very fruity pasa-laden wine with a trace of tannin and a little acidity, but overall extremely sweet with good length.
A good young PX made in Sanlucar. The Alfaraz range seems to have been replaced by the Santiago range which the Cooperative now makes in Jerez.
Not available in the UK.
