Don't forget these...


A dense and powerful example of Andalusian Pedro Ximénez. A 1ha plot, Pago "Río Frío Alto" in the Sierra de Montilla (Mountains of Montilla) planted in 2016 at an elevation of 350-500m on albariza soils with a high content of limestone and carbonates. Everything that José Miguel does is by hand and without any chemical manipulations of any kind. Most people are familiar with the sweeter style Sherries made from sun-dried and fortified PX grapes but this is a still and un-sulfured style.

Grapes are organically farmed and manually harvested. Direct to press, with no maceration, it is spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeast and aged in stainless steel for several months after harvest before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero S02. It is amazing to see how these wines age and develop in the bottle. The complexity of raw "unfortified" styles also make phenomenal food pairings and because of the low acid and richness, often present "sweet-ish" on the palate, while being fermented dry. Try with meaty/spicy dishes for a little fun.
