Nectar Pedro Ximenez Sherry – 8.4 – James Melendez

This Pedro Ximenez by Gonzales Byass presents a wine that relatively low in alcohol (15.5%) compared with other Sherries which can rocket up to 17%+.  This wine has a strong influence of raisin and simmered plum but the usual cascades, bursts and continuous flavor tends to waiver and is not the tour de force that is enjoyable.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.

    Hello James, I bought a bottle of Pedro Ximenez Viejo NOE jerez at the Madrid airport duty free shop. Needing to get rid of some euros before boarding I just picked it up not realizing what a treasure I had. I have not been able to find it anywhere and have heard that sometimes the really good sherries are not exported. At any rate, can you help me to find it or something comparable? Thank you, Steve
