Product Description
Details

Crafted by Bodegas Alvear, Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada is a young varietal unfortified 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 2017, from the Andalusian region of Montilla-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.
