Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez NV

Montilla-Moriles, SpainThe solera started 1927, so a tiny portion of this special wine is now 90 years old. Pedro Ximenez grapes are harvested late, and spread out on mats for one month to dry in the southern Spain sun until they are raisins. When pressed, the must is exceptionally sweet and quickly muted with the addition of spirit. Dark maple syrup, treacle, roasted pecans mix with raisins, dried apricot, hoisin, coffee, walnut, orange, toffee flavours with a stream of acidity to keep it all fresh. Very full in the mouth and quite sweet at 405 grams of residual sugar. Try with dried fruit, nuts and cheeses or a pecan tart.Tasted: 13 February 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 BCLS Producer: Bodegas AlvearDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
