Parentage of the grape: None found. Ancient variety. There is a legend that it was brought from the Rhine by a Spanish soldier in the 17th century, but this has not been substantiated. It is not to be confused with the completely different variety called Pedro Gimenez that is found in Argentina and Chile.

History of the grape: Though it is grown throughout southern Spain, this grape variety is best known for the wines it produces in Andalucia, particularly Montilla-Moriles. Less productive and more disease-prone than Palomino, it is almost never grown in Jerez anymore, but is imported there from Montilla Moriles. The grapes are then left out Read more »

Pedro Ximénez on Snooth

  • I can't find the ideal match though I haven't strayed from dry whites and reds yet. Correct me if I'm wrong but aged brie has a bit of that moldiness that almost reminds me of TCA. Who wants a wine that complements TCA? If wine did go with TCA then cork taint wouldn't be a fault! Anyway maybe I should venture into the sweeter realm since bluevei... Read More

  • As far as I'm concerned, there is no better way to end the day than reading a good book while sipping a glass of good port. Here's the challenge: port's not cheap. The very best port I've had was a Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port. I loved its complexity, but at nearly $50 a bottle, that's an occasional indulgence at best. I tried some Fon... Read More

Its interesting, and fairly unique, but it overpowered my dessert, although it might work with a strong cheese. Read More
