Pedro Ximenez

Pedro Ximenez

A grape found in Andalucia yielding large bunches of thick-skinned black berries and used to create one of the richest, sweetest, darkest wines in the world.   The centre of production is in the Montilla-Moriles region where fortified wines similar to Sherry are made.  The grape makes fairly high alcohol, low acid wines with high sugar content. To accentuate the richness, the grapes are often dried in the sun to shrivel thus producing PX that is used to sweeten certain styles of Montilla and Sherry.  In Australia, the grape is informally called Pedro and is also used in making sweet dessert wines.

    This sherry is made from the native grape, Palomino Fino which comes from older vines on the estate vineyard “Pago Balbaino” of white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone. The wine is fortified early on in the winemaking process with grape spirit so that the cap of ‘flor’ yeast doesn’t grow (as in fino sherry) and it undergoes oxidative ageing. It is aged for 30 years using the soleras and criaderas system. It is a complex sherry, with aromas such as dry fruit, hazelnuts, chocolate and sweet spices . The sherry’s concentration gives it a very pure, almost saline finish on the palate which make the sherry incredibly appetizing. A beautiful sherry to serve with nuts or aged cheeses.

Alternatively just sip slowly as a very complex dessert wine on its own.
