Details

Crafted by the Bodegas Alvear winery, Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada is a single varietal, sweet Spanish white wine made from Pedro Ximénez grapes coming from a single vintage.

The wine was made through the dessication of the grapes, which lost up to 65% of its water content. Naturally sun-dried, they were subsequently pressed twice in order to obtain a highly-concentrated wine must.

Finally, Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada 2015, from the Andalusian region of Montilla y Moriles, was blended and aged for 12 months.

Interestingly enough, the 2011 vintage of this Alvear PX de Añada was given no less than 100 points, a perfect score, by Robert Parker.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

This sweet wine Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada has a bright amber colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

This sweet white wine is quite intense. Notes of ripe white fruit, raisins, figs, nuts, dates, quince, orange marmalade, toasted almonds and smoke, typical of a varietal Pedro Ximénez.

Palate

Sweet and powerful, this wine from Montilla perfectly balances sweetness and freshness. Honey, a dash of lime and lemon, and some remembrances of almonds, quince jelly and toasted pistachios. This wine by Bodega Alvear has an unctuous, savoury, long finish.

Our personal opinion

A remarkable value, Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada 2015 is a wonderful afternoon wine.
