The grapes were naturally sun-dried and then Alvear Pedro Ximénez 1927 was aged in used American oak barrels following the traditional “soleras y criaderas” system of rotation for five years. We should enjoy this wine over the next 3-4 years.
A wine that will seduce you from the very first sip, Alvear Pedro Ximénez 1927 will enhance and prolong any after-dinner conversation. We would recommend that you drink this fortified sweet wine without food, in the afternoon with sweet pastries or perhaps with dark, bitter chocolate.
A suggestion: if you want to give your dishes a sophisticated twist, prepare a reduction of this wine to dress foie gras, red meats, or a salad. The versatility of this wine is difficult to match. Besides, it has an exceptional price.
The wine Alvear Pedro Ximénez 1927 has a deep mahogany colour with iodine edges. This wine from Montilla-Moriles has a high, clean, dense robe.
Intense aromas, defined by an nicely varietal Pedro Ximénez character. Notes of black fruit, dry figs, nuts, quince, and ripe black fruits intertwined with honey, burnt sugar, and toast.
Lush, with a big and intense entrance on the palate. Very expressive, this wine by Bodegas Alvear is dense and medium-sweet, with a long and silky passage, nuanced by hints of cocoa, orange peel, aromatic herbs and coffee. Great and refreshing acidity, a perfect counterpoint to its sweetness. Long, complex finish which leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
