The oldest of all the Finos produced by bodega Alvear, Alvear Fino Capataz is an interesting Spanish fortified wine.
Produced following the soleras and criaderas system, this Fino from Montilla-Moriles was aged for 12 years minimum under the "flor" veil.
This fortified wine hence lies halfway between an aged Fino and a young Amontillado. It is a truly unique fortified wine from Montilla-Moriles.
Pair this dry fortified wine with oysters, tempura vegetables or clam soup. You can also enjoy it throughout a multi course meal.
The fortified wine Alvear Fino Capataz is deep mahogany with some brownish reflections.
Aromas of dry fruit, candied sugar and spices, typical of the Pedro Ximénez variety, with some saline and bitter remembrances.
This wine from bodegas Alvear is smooth-bodied and pleasantly unctuous, with flavours of dates, bitter green almonds and citrus peel, ending in a note of old wood and withered leaves.
