6.2.19 Ximénez Spínola Launch Centenary PX
Possibly the oldest surviving bodega in Jerez and which uniquely makes wine only from Pedro Ximénez, the firm is celebrating the centenary of its solera, established in 1918. The wine is thus a blend of every vintage since then, 100 in all. Until then the wine was sold without any reference to its age but in 1918 the solera was registered with the Commission of Wine Producers and Exporters, the forerunner of the Consejo Regulador. Since then around 20% has been extracted annually for bottling after ageing for at least 15 years, and this edition with its special label numbers 10,000 bottles, each of which comes with a guarantee certificate with photographs of 100 vintages.
