NV Alvear Pedro Ximénez Solera 1927
Region: Montilla-Moriles, Andalucía, Spain
Insanely dark appearance that looks like black coffee. Thick nose with notes of caramel, toffee and vanilla. Balanced acidity that helps to cut through the sweetness and stops this from becoming overly thick and sweet. Layered palate with raisins, kaluha and coffee liquor. Full bodied and long finish.
Made up of 100% Pedro Ximénez and made using the Solera system which was started back in 1927 by Bodegas Alvear.
2017 till 2040.
Price Point:$$ - Purchased from Full Pull Wines for around $25.00, it was so good we grabbed some more from The Great Falls Wine Outlet for around the same price. Average price is under $30.00 for a 375mL.
