2011 Elki Pedro Ximenez, Elqui Valley

( £8.50, 13%, www.thedailydrinker.co.uk )

If you’re used to PX being a sweet grape from Jerez, this wine may surprise you because it’s dry and refreshing. It’s also from the edge of Chile’s Atacama desert. It’s zesty and crisp with a mealy texture and a slight edge of bitterness, which works well with food.
