Pedro Ximenez is a white wine grape varietal best known for its role in producing dessert wines in Spain's sherry region and in Australia. But this version from Chile shows it can also produce a compelling dry white table wine. The 2010 Falernia Pedro Ximenez Reserva shows a bright range of flavors: mint and other herbs, lime, grapefruit, pear and minerals. It's crisp and long-finishing and more complex than the price would suggest. Imported by Empson USA, it's one of the most complete white wines I've tasted from Chile.
