2018 Alvear Pedro Ximenez de Anada 0.375 ltr
This soft sweet wine is made from Pedro Ximenez grapes that are traditionally sun-dried on mats. This artisanal process is known as 'asoleo'. The wine is aged for 12 months in earthenware barrels, the so-called "tinajas". The Alvear Pedro Ximenez de Anada tastes rich and lusciously sweet with pleasant notes of honey, raisins and dried dates. Best served at around 12-14 degrees Celsius. This PX can also be preserved for a long time, certainly until 2030+.
Goes well with sweet desserts and also delicious with a cheese board. The PX de Anada always scores very well with Parker. The 2018 has not yet been rated but the 2014 got 96 points.
Alvear was founded in 1729 and has always been owned by the same family. Alvear owns about 300 hectares of vineyards in the Montilla-Moriles appellation. Anyone who visits the area will recognize the incredible white soils, dominated by lime/slate, which determine the acidity of Alvear wines.
