Pedro Ximénez

White Spanish varietal, from the Andalucía region, used to make Sweet style Sherry wines that are luscious, rich and with prolonged finish”.

Pedro Ximénez is a white varietal original from Andalucía, the Southernmost autonomous region in the Iberian Peninsula. There are records that this varietal was already planted in the seventeenth century to produce sweet fortified wines and unfortified wines that are generally high in alcohol and relatively low in acidity. Pedro Ximénez grapes have relatively high-sugar levels and this, combined with the warm weather of the Andalucía regions were it is planted, allows producers to sun dry these grapes (a traditional way to naturally concentrate sugars in the grapes) to produce intensely sweet fortified wines. The grate majority of hectares planted are under the Montilla-Moriles D.O.. In the last years, however, some producers in regions further north of Andalucía, like Priorat, Montsant and Valencia, have planted Pedro Ximénez vines to use it in white grape blends, more than alone for fortified wines.

Why we like Pedro Ximénez?

We like Pedro Ximénez because is an indigenous and centenarian (some records are found of this grape being mentioned in the early seventeenth century) Spanish grape varietal capable of producing some of the most complex and intriguing sweet wines anywhere in the world.

You’d love Pedro Ximénez if you like…

…Luscious, dark and creamy sweet wines, displaying strong nutty and caramel aromas. Also, if you like wines that are full bodied, with strong flavours that could bring memories of Christmas pudding, coffee and chocolate.

Or, in general, if you like to treat yourself with a sweet craving from time to time.
