Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Anada 2014

Montilla-Moriles, SpainA pierce of piney resin, orange oil, scrubby rosemary on this unctuous golden PX, one that bathes the palate with thick marmalade and auburn maple syrup. Golden raisins and honeysuckle are flecked with walnuts and rancio notes through the exceptionally long finish. Acidity keeps this aloft, even with a staggering 435 g/l RS. This sweet, youthful wine is made with pedro ximenez grapes that were sundried on mats before aging in the traditional earthenware “tinajas”, for at least 12 months.Tasted: 25 April 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 375 BCLS Producer: Bodegas AlvearDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
