Enjoying sherry wine / pairings and recipes / Pedro Ximénez

Hazelnut and fig semi freddo

Pair with: Pedro Ximénez


Cooking time: 1 hour

This match with dessert was the easiest one for us to choose… This “NOÉ” PX is simply a liquid “Hazelnut and Figs Semi Freddo” into the glass! The texture of the dessert is perfectly matched with the rich, silky, thick wine and at the same time it is wonderfully balanced by a great acidity.

Serving and consuming

Pedro Ximénez with food

Pedro Ximénez should be served slightly chilled, at between 12 and 14ºC, though the younger wines may be served at lower temperatures.

It is a dessert in itself, though combining exceptionally well with desserts based on slightly bitter chocolate, with ice-creams and blue cheeses of great intensity, such as Cabrales or Roquefort.

  • Always serve slightly chilled

    Serve between 12 & 14º C in a white wine glass.

  • A dessert in itself

    A perfect way to finish a meal. Pairs perfectly with desserts that aren't too sweet.

  • Style of glass

    In traditional wide rimmed catavinos or in a white wine glass.
