Pedro Ximénez is a white variety grown in Andalucia (south-central Spain). Primarily used in the production of sweet, late harvest Sherry, it can also make a crisp and dry white wine in southern Spain. New South Wales, Australia produces Pedro Ximénez and Palomino (the other major sherry grape) in botrytized form to produce the rich and golden sweet wine called McWilliam’s Pedro Sauterne. This is also Chile’s grape for Pisco production and makes a lovely varietal dry white from the Elqui Valley.
