DON PX
CONVENTO SELECCIÓN 1946

Valued for being rare, deep and very sweet, elaborated with 100% Pedro Ximénez raisined grape clusters. The origin of this exceptional wine is the result of Antonio Sánchez’s personal choice and decision over the bottling’s most favourable time. It’s an authentic gem of our winery, distinguished with 100 Robert Parker points, the first sweet wine to receive this recognition.

“Convento Selección” are wines that have aged for generations in amontillado butts so that the wine and wood could merge with time and result into an unmatchable flavour. Our bottling system is called “Convento Selección” in honour to the Cistercian monk system in which the wine is classified in their own series. The entire elaboration is handmade, following San Benito’s Recula Rule: “Living off the work of our hands.”.

  • Taste:  Sweet and dense entry, with mild acidity and alight bitter touch. It’s a round wine, with no rough edges, and of lingering finish.
