#5 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2017

The vineyards, located at an elevation of 1,050 feet, are comprised of the famous chalky soil called Albariza and the 40-year-old vines produce extremely low yields. The grapes were hand-harvested at the peak of maturity and dried on mats in the sun. This is one of the oldest wines in the cellar since the Solera was started at the beginning of the last century.

Description

98, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“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.”

96, Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2015 Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada is another beauty. Made from sun-dried Pedro Ximénez grapes that were fermented and aged in large clay jars, it reveals a ruby/amber color as well as a great nose of orange liqueur, brown sugar, honeyed figs, and flowers. Uber-full-bodied, thick, and vicious, it’s a dessert wine geared for tiny sips. It will probably age forever.”

96, Editors’ Choice, Wine Enthusiast

“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.

93, Guia Peñín

 90, Wine Spectator

“Menthol and prune aromas and flavors highlight thisintense, sweet dessert wine. It exhibits plenty of brightness and complexity, ending with butterscotch and bitter chocolate notes. Nicely put together.”
