Designation for a sweet liqueur wine from Spain which is also produced or used in other countries. The name is derived from Monte Pajarete in Cádiz in Andalusia, where the wine originally comes from. Arrope (a grape syrup) has been added to it in part.
A Malaga wine type; see there.
In Chile the Pajarete, also known as "sun wine", is a sweet wine of protected origin from the Atacama and Coquimbo areas. It is made from the Muscat d'Alexandrie and País(Listán Prieto) varieties.
There is also a Pajarete in Mexico. One of these distilled spirits is called "Pajarete Tapacío". The "Pajarete de Jalisco" (jalisco = intoxicated) is a popular mixed drink in Mexico. A glass of fresh cow's milk is mixed with high-proof aguardiente or white tequila, grated chocolate and sugar.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
