Bin #013 Pedro Ximenéz Seco, Montilla-Moriles 2021

An intriguing and delicious Spanish must-try – whether or not you like sherry!

Region: Montilla Moriles
Grape: Pedro Ximenéz (100%)

We are thrilled to introduce you to the first new addition to our limited-edition Bin Series range of 2023: an unfortified, dry Spanish table wine made from Pedro Ximenéz, a grape that is normally used for making very sweet sherries.

This is a wine we recommend wholeheartedly to all. It was made by Spain’s oldest family-owned winery, Alvear, and bottled especially for The Society. It comes from Montilla-Moriles, near Cordoba, which is around two and a half hours’ drive north-east of the official sherry region of Jerez, and which has a unique terroir that is reflected beautifully in the wine.  
This light, unfortified white was fermented and matured in large concrete amphorae (tinajas) under a veil of flor (yeast) for several months, and then bottled after a year to capture the wine’s zesty minerality. Expect a dry, mouthwatering and mineral wine with a bready, umami note and fantastic food-matching credentials, whether enjoyed as an aperitif with olives and almonds or a dinner-table partner to sushi or grilled sardines.
