Alvear Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 (375ml)

Montilla Moriles, SPAIN
$47. 99
$575.88 Dozen
ABV: 16%
Closure: Cork

Deep viscous sienna brown black in colour with a distinctive olive green tinged hue. Decadently scented and incredibly potent, the nose is overwhelmed with dried raisin, Christmas cake and honeyed fig aromas with some toffee apple, walnut and spice notes also chiming in. Incredibly thick and dense, draped across the palate with an engine oil like consistency is an ultra concentrate of honeyed raisins, Christmas cake, toffee and marmalade flavours with some molasses and spicy walnut characters lingering underneath. Warm syrupy mouthfeel with an exceptionally long palate staining finish that stays in the mouth for minutes after the wine has been swallowed. In a word stunning.
Alc. 16%

Other Reviews….
Alvear was founded in 1729 and remains under the control of the same family. They own 307 acres of vineyards in the Montilla-Moriles appellation. Anyone who visits the area recognizes the incredible white soils, which are dominated by chalk/limestone and the key to the great acids these products possess.
The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer. Drink 2016-2050.
