Fernando Andrada-Vanderwilde, who came from an aristocratic family that traces back more than two centuries of origin, whom in 1972 took over some old cellars from sherry giant Pedro Domecq, as well as brandy soleras from Marqués del Real Tesoro. Andrada-Vanderwilde created the brand “Fernando de Castilla” initially with the aim of producing the most select brandy in Spain. He was honouring the Spanish king Fernando “The Saint” who had conquered large parts of western Andalusia and discovered the exceptional properties of the soil and climate in this region, ideal for viticulture.

Fernando III, a virtous and pious king, was honoured by people as “el Santo”, who ruled a large part of Iberia during 13th century.

The house Pedro Ximenez Classic Sherry had been made from 100% Pedro Ximénez grapes. Their vines are grown on estate vineyard “Montalbán” on white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone.

After harvest, Pedro Ximénez is made by drying the grapes under the hot Spanish sun, concentrating the sweetness. The grapes are then pressed and begin fermentation while fortified to 15%. Because the wine has not completed fermentation, much of the sugars remain where it is aged oxidatively in the traditional solera and criaderas system of oak barrels. Despite this is  mixed-vintage product, the average age of the wine is 8 years old. The age can be reflected from the complexity of its tertiary aroma.

Serving and Ageing

Serve this wine in smaller vessels like ISO glasses, at lightly chilled temperature around 12℃. Due to its luscious taste, syrupy texture, match with very sweet dessert or blue cheese.

Sherry does not change much through bottle ageing, though its nutty flavours will enhance as its age advances.

    “An intense yet balanced dessert Sherry, with a burnt aroma that, along with the alcohol, almost singes the nose. Bittersweet chocolate, raisin and a shiso leaf herbaceousness keep the flavours interesting. The finish is sweet, yet clean and long. Drink now. 1,000 cases made.”

    "PX is so much more than sweet, or old. Fernando de Castilla’s Jan Pettersen doesn’t just want raisins in a glass, he’s looking for dates, figs, leather, and tobacco. Stunning complexity.”
