Grape VarietyPedro Ximenez
Sweet - luscious, decadent, medium to full-bodied
As these early release wines are neither barrel-aged nor blended, they are wonderfully pure, grapey examples of Pedro that capture all the delicious raisin and honey hedonism and the racy acidity of the variety before the rancio sets in. It finishes warm, lingering and sweet. Despite this natural sugar level, it remains remarkably bright and fresh.
Pedro Ximénez’ affinity with chocolate-based desserts is well known. Perhaps less well-known is how well the wines pair with salty blue cheeses. This is particularly the case with Toro Albalá’s younger vintage wines. This can also match well with fig-based desserts and sweet pastries.
