What is Pedro Ximenez Sherry?               

Sherry wine is a fortified wine made in Spain, whereas in Portugal a fortified wine is called a Port wine. In Australia, we used to use these names, but now we use terms like fortified red wine, fortified white wine, apera, Topaque and varietal names like Pedro Ximenez.

Pedro Ximenez sherry is made from a white Spanish sherry grape variety called Pedro Ximenez. Sometimes the Spanish sherry grape is called Pedro Ximenes or just PX sherry or Pedro X. It has been grown in Spain and made into sherry wine for centuries.

Pedro Ximénez Port wine

Pedro Ximénez Port wine is a luscious and decadent fortified wine that originates from the Montilla-Moriles region of Spain. Made from the Pedro Ximénez grape variety, this wine is known for its deep mahogany colour and rich, sweet flavour profile. The grapes are left to ripen on the vine, concentrating their sugars and flavours, before they are harvested and dried under the warm Andalusian sun.

This drying process intensifies the sweetness of the grapes and gives Pedro Ximénez Port its signature characteristics. The resulting wine boasts notes of raisins, figs, caramel, and honey, creating a velvety and indulgent mouthfeel. Pedro Ximénez Port is often enjoyed as a Pedro Ximénez dessert wine, and its natural sweetness pairs beautifully with chocolate, nuts, and rich, creamy desserts.

It is best served slightly chilled to enhance its complexity and aromatic qualities. Whether sipped on its own or paired with a delectable treat, Pedro Ximénez Port wine is a luxurious and satisfying choice for those seeking a sweet and delightful indulgence.

Pedro Ximenez in Western Australia

The first plants that came to Western Australia were taken by British settlers as cuttings from the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa in the early 1830s. The vines are vigorous on the rich alluvial soils of the Swan Valley with its Mediterranean climate. The vines produce large bunches of white grapes suitable for making a range of sherry wine styles from dry white wine, dry organic sherry and the sweetest dessert wines.

Other names for Pedro Ximenez Sherry

The word sherry is an anglicisation of Xérès (Jerez)

Some synonyms include Pedro Jimenez wine, Pedro Ximenes, Jerez, and in Australia, it is often referred to as Pedro or PX. Pedro Jimenez is made in Chile from Pedro Ximenez grapes. The variety Pedro Gimenez, which is used widely in Argentina for cheap everyday white wines, is unrelated despite the similar name. The other sherry variety from Jerez, the traditional home of Sherry, is Palomino which is much more common there than Pedro Ximenez. Pedro X is used to add sweetness to blends with Palomino and also on its own to make dark sweet viscous wines, both in Jerez and other regions in Southern Spain.

In Chile, Pedro Ximenez is the variety most often used to make Pisco, the local version of their brandy. Like Palomino, Pedro Ximenez wine can also be used to make dry white wine without much character.

To maximize the Pedro grape sugar levels the twenty-year-old PX vines have to be meticulously maintained through the growing season. Only short canes are wrapped down on the cordon wire during pruning. After the budburst, the vine crown is thinned to maximise vine growth from the cordon. 

To make the rich and luscious liqueur PX sherry wine that is renowned worldwide the sugar level has to be extra-ordinary high. This is achieved by letting the organic sherry grapes ripen and shrivel as raisins on the vine in the warm autumn sunshine.
