Bodegas El Maestro Sierra, Pedro Ximenez [375ml], Jerez, Spain NV
100% Pedro Ximenez
DRIED FIG, DATE, CAPSICUM PEPPER, SWEET
If you’ve never had a sweet Pedro Ximenez, then you’re missing out. Sometimes they can have flavors of molasses and honey, but this one leans more towards dried fig and spicy earthy flavors. This tiny sherry producer continues to make complex, monumental wines of great age at surprisingly reasonable prices (due to the unjust decrease in demand for these wonderful wines). Started in 1832, this is a wine to enjoy before the style goes extinct and the wineries defunct.
Serving Suggestions: Shoo-Fly Pie. Pour it over vanilla ice cream or even whip it into your vanilla-malt milkshake.
