The 2019 Pedro Ximenez is one of the few wines produced with this variety in Chile, but nobody is ever sure if it's exactly the same PX as in Spain. Anyway, the grape seems quite neutral and transmits the conditions of the place and vintage. 2019 was a very good overall vintage in Chile, and the wines tend to keep good freshness and moderate alcohol. This is not super expressive on the nose, and on the palate, it's serious, dry and mineral, balanced and restrained. It's very tasty and finishes dry.
Part of the Coquimbo region, also with the Limari Valley, Elqui Valley is one of the northern wine producing regions of Chile, which historically focused on table grapes and pisco production. Intense sunlight and cooling effects of the ocean, together with rocky, clay soil make this one of Chile’s up-and-coming wine regions.
The grape with the coolest name and some of the greatest fame in the wine-growing world, Pedro Ximénez is responsible for a handful of radically different wine styles. A white variety grown in Andalucia, Spain, it is primarily used in the production of sweet, late harvest Sherry as well as for crisp, dry whites. Somm Secret—It is also grown in New South Wales, Australia to produce the rich and golden McWilliam’s Pedro Sauterne and in Chile for Pisco production as well as a lovely varietal dry white from the Elqui Valley.
