Pedro Ximénez is the grape for this fino-style wine, not the usual Palomino. It's made in the dry style, with peach, papaya and spicy, yeasty aromas. Where it differs most from a normal fino is in the mouth, where things get big and gangly. It's slightly bitter as well, with apple, lemon and an echo on the finish.
