It’s Pedro Ximenez folks, but not as you know it!!

A really good entry-level white to the Recoleta range and something a bit different. Not just another Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay blend.  When Mauricio Lorca purchased a vineyard in the east of Mendoza that was planted with old vine Pedro Ximénez (more accurately Pedro Giménez or Criolla Blanca as it’s not the Jerez varietal), eyebrows were raised. What a pleasant surprise, then, to find a wine offering a delightful flurry of inviting aromatics – lots of juicy-ripe citrus fruit, yes, but also lifted herbaceous notes, dried flowers and summer straw – definitely giving away its Criolla family connections. This lovely little wine is stylistically more like an Albariño than a run-of-the-mill Pinot Grigio, with lots to get stuck into, great balance and structure and an excellent finish. Nice one Mauricio!
