Description

Gutierrez Colosia Pedro Ximenez Sherry is an instensely sweet Sherry made in the town of Puerto de Santa Maria.

Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia can trace it beginnings back to 1838 when the bodega was built and has been preserved almost as such to this day. Towards the beginning of the 20th century it was acquired by Sr. José Gutiérrez Dosal, the late great-grandfather of the current Gutiérrez Colosía family. The Gutiérrez Colosía wines are produced in bodegas, or wine cellars, with an architectural style known as Nave Cathedral or cathedral-like warehouse. These arched buildings of significant height, help to expose the wines to the influence of the local climate.  Its cellars are located at the mouth of the river Guadalete in El Puerta de Santa Maria (the third town on the Sherry Triangle after Jerez de La Frontera and Sanlúcar de Barrameda). The location gives the Sherries produced by Gutiérrez Colosía a unique microclimate that offers the perfect humidity level to grow flor, and age their unique tasting Fino del Puerto.

These Puerto-variation wines are traditionally lighter in oxidative flavour than those from Jerez. Juan-Carlos Gutiérrez Colosia believes his Fino is best drunk fresh and chilled, so it is therefore available after only three or four years in solera. His Amontillado and Oloroso are bottled with greater age and are also perfect for chilling.

For the Gutierrez Colosia Pedro Ximenez Sherry, Pedro Ximenez grapes are allowed to fully ripen and dry on the vine until they are quite raisined prior to harvesting and crushing to release their super sweet juice.

Tasting Notes

Gutierrez Colosia Pedro Ximenez Sherry (or PX for short) is rich and dark-looking with a light viscous feel in the glass. Perfume is quite heady, redolent of raisins, plums and figs. Full, rich, unctuous molasses- like wine yet with a freshness that is very appealing and a good balance of acidity at the finish. Not the heaviest PX but one with a certain style.
