Know how you can trickle balsamic vinegar over fresh strawberries? Well it works with PX sherry too. Even better if you leave them to macerate for 10 minutes or so.

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.
