Osborne Pedro Ximenez


In the South of Spain in the region of Andalusia in a small town named Jerez they produced some dessert wines. I choose the unique Pedro Ximenez or PX for abbreviation, this wine has the distinguish characteristic to be the second sweetest wine (300 grams of sugar per littler, sometimes even more) in the world and the dark color in the glass. This wine is an extraordinary experience to drink; I choose one of the classic examples of the Region: the Osborne Pedro Ximenez 1827. The grape was saved at the time the moors conquest in the south Spain, because this grape was enthusiastically liked by them to be used in their cuisine, and that’s how the grape was saved for future generations.

If you like sweet wine this is a unique experience and you can see one of the levels of well crafted and with the perfect terroir can transform this white grape to an iconic sweet wine.

I recommended this Jerez after a big meal as a palate cleanser, a little bit goes a long way, this is the type of dessert wines I recommended to try just to see how a grape can created all this flavors in a perfect harmony without any problem. This wine put sweet in the sweet wine, I recommended just if you have a sweet palate if not there is another wines out here for you
