Australian Organic Pedro Ximenez

Australian Pedro Ximenez

A Spanish grape variety Pedro Ximenez does exceptionally well in the vine-growing region of the Swan Valley. This award winning organic wine began existence as grapes that were hand thinned at the green berry stage so that the vine can sun-ripen its remaining grapes to raisins of very high sugar levels, without irrigation.

Pedro Ximenez is available in 375 mL bottles and in bulk cubes. Buy their beautiful fortified style wines from their Wine Shop today.

Pedro Ximenez wine-making

Natural Pedro Ximenez wine-making

Very ripe organic grapes are crushed, de-stemmed prior to being pumped to the ferment tank. The ferment starts with natural yeasts and continues at 20C until the ferment has proceeded through about 6 Be'.

The skins are drained and basket pressed, the PX juice returned to an open fermenter under the verandah. The ferment continues at 25C until the carbon dioxide gas production slows. Once the ferment is slow the wine is pumped to oak barriques for cellaring underground and maturation. After two summers the wine is bottled and sealed with screw caps.

This wine has no alcohol added and is high in antioxidants. No preservatives in the way of sulphites are added either. It is neither clarified or filtered. A unique and a true natural sweet wine. Consume within one month after opening.

Alcohol - 11% pH 3.9, Residual Sugar - 10+ Baume Total sulphides SO2, less than 10 ppm naturally formed.

The hand picked raisins produces a preservative free Pedro Ximenez dessert wine with no additives or preservatives. This luscious sweet natural dessert is one of the most awarded wines in the Swan wine region.

Buy from the Wine Shop today the beautiful Pedro Ximenez, you will be impressed.

Fortified Pedro Ximenez wine-making

Very ripe organic grapes are crushed, de-stemmed prior to being pumped to the ferment tank. The ferment starts with natural yeasts and continues at 20C until the ferment has proceeded through about 3 Be'.

The skins are drained and basket pressed, the juice returned to an open fermenter under the verandah. The ferment continues at 25C until the wine-maker determines it is the correct time to fortify the wine with his organic brandy spirit. Once the ferment has stopped the wine is pumped to oak hogsheads for underground cellaring and maturation. After four summers the wine is bottled and sealed with natural cork.

This wine has alcohol added and is about 19% alcohol. Some preservatives in the way of sulphites are added. It is clarified and filtered prior to bottling. Harris recommends to consume within one month after opening.

Alcohol - 19% pH 3.9, Residual Sugar - 10+ Baume Total sulphides SO2, less than 100 ppm.

The hand picked raisins produces a luscious dessert wine in a PX sherry style. This luscious sweet dessert one of the best wines in Perth Western Australia's Swan wine district.

Tasting notes:

A burnished golden colour with flavours of honey, butterscotch and raisin pudding. This wine has a complex, lingering sweetness that is beautifully balanced. Enjoy with cheeses, dried fruits or with a dessert of your choice, we prefer pancakes and icecream. More information can be found at our blog page about Pedro Ximenez .
