About Pedro Ximinez Solera 1927 Montilla-Moriles, Alvear 375ML Half-Bottle

#5 Top 100 Wines of 2017 Wine Enthusiast Magazine!! Alvear is one of the most prestigious and internationally renowned bodegas in Andalucía, boasting extensive vineyards that are located in the most famous estates in the Sierra de Montilla y Moriles (Córdoba). This privileged land's star grape variety is Pedro Ximénez. Pedro Ximénez makes a sweet, smooth wine by exposing the grapes to the sun once harvested. Grape clusters are spread over plaited esparto grass mats and the grapes are slowly sun-dried until becoming raisins. A dense must is then obtained from the crushed raisins to produce an authentic ‘raisin juice'. The subsequent winemaking and ageing processes give rise to the region's classic sweet Pedro Ximénez wines. This wine aged solera style with new wine added to the mature wine casks each vintage. This wine comes from a solera that started with the 1927 vinatge. Wine Enthusiast Magazine designated this an Editors' Choice and scored it 96 points saying "One of the world's best PX wines is Solera 1927, the pride of Alvear. Whatever solera stocks went into this bottling were well selected. Aromas of maple and fine wood turn to fig and caramel. Saturation and weight on the palate are expected, but this has some (though not a lot) acidic cut. Deep flavors of fig and Nutella finish with nuttiness and warmth. Drink or hold." and the Wine Advocate scored it 98 points saying "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."
