Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Williams & Humbert Don Guido PX VOS is a generous sweet Pedro Ximénezwine from the D.O. Jerés-Xérès-Sherry produced by Bodegas William & Humbert.

Bodegas William & Humbert is located in the triangle formed by Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, and which is between the estuaries of the Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. This area is characterised by its undulating, white limestone land called albarizas.

The Williams & Humbert Don Guido PX VOSvineyards are located in Jerez Superior. The grape used for its preparation is of the Pedro Ximénez variety. This is left to dry in the sun for 15 days on almijares, a kind of round carpet. They are then pressed and the must is fortified to 9º. The impurities are denatured and eliminated and the must is then fortified again up to 18º to finally become part of the Criaderas y Soleras system where it undergoes an oxidative ageing in barrels for at least 20 years. Finally the resulting wine has approximately 380gr/litre of all-natural sugar.

In the name Williams & Humbert Don Guido PX VOS we see the acronym VOS. This is an indication of the age of a Sherry wine. VOS is the acronym "Vinum Optimum Signatum" in Latin, and refers to the fact that the wine has an average age of over 20 years.

Williams & Humbert Don Guido PX VOS is a very old Pedro Ximénez, more than 20 years old, that reminds us of raisins, figs and nuts and with a very pleasant and enveloping natural sweetness.

Pictures and situation Williams & Humbert
Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
