Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Alvear is one of SpainÃ¢Â€Â™s most consistent producers of sweet wines. This vintage Pedro Ximenez is big but fresh on the nose, with apricot and caramel aromas and some heat. A creamy, thick palate is a bit syrupy, while buttered toffee flavors are rich on a highly viscous finish..September/2017
Wine Advocate 96 points - The 2014 Pedro Ximenez de Anada is dark amber and sweet, with notes of honeyed figs, maple syrup, toffee and almond liqueur. It is rich and unctuous, very full-bodied and a serious decadent elixir. It should last for 20-30 years, or more..Robert M. Parker, Jr., November/2015
The name tells you all about this wineÃ¢Â€Â™s origin: this sweet young wine is obtained through drying the Pedro Ximenez grapes on mats in the sun. It is the best way of bringing an intense Andalusian summer sun to your table from a single harvest. The wine is aged in the traditional earthenware jars, Ã¢Â€ÂœtinajasÃ¢Â€Â?, where it is left for 12 months.
Nice partner for foie gras, blue chesses, desserts, ice creams and nuts. It can also be served with ice as a cooling delicious drink.
