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 2018, from the Andalusian region of Montilla-Moriles, was blended and aged for 12 months.
Interestingly, the 2011 vintage of this Alvear PX de Añada was given no less than 100 points, a perfect score, by Robert Parker.
This sweet wine Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada is bright amber with some golden tinges.
Quite intense. Notes of ripe white fruit, raisins, figs, nuts, dates, quince, orange marmalade, toasted almonds and smoke, typical of a varietal Pedro Ximénez.
Sweet and powerful, with a nice balance between sweetness and freshness. This wine of bodega Alvear has a long finish, with a citrusy note and remembrances of almonds, quince jelly and toasted pistachios.
