Piedra Luenga Pedro Ximénez

The organic wines Pedro Ximenez are one of the most original wines in the world. A soldier in Spanish army names it after the grape variety originally grown, it is said, from cutting of wines from Rhine brought to Andalusia centuries ago.

The grape bunches are spread out in the sun on the paseros (esparto matts). Every day the bunches are carefully turned to ensure an even toasting in the hot southern Spanish sun, until they are practically raisins. The aim is to reduce the liquid content of the grape, so that the resulting must will contain more than 300 grams of sugar per liter. When the grapes reach the desired degree of sweetness, they are crushed and, before fermentation starts, fortified to nine percent alcohol.

The resulting wine is called vino tierno, tender wine. Next, the alcohol level is increased progressively to 15 percent and the wine is matured following the solera and criadera system.

It is a organic wine made from organically grown grapes. In order for a vineyard to be classed as organic, we must be able to prove which vineyard the grapes came from, then the CAAE (Spanish officially recognized body) certified the vineyard as organic, and from what date certified organic practices began.

Such growing methods for this organic wine used by our parents and grandparents give precisely what fine winemakers seek: smaller harvests of high quality grapes expressing the full character of the wine´s variety without the muddied aromas or taste of residual chemicals.
