Product guide note

This wine is made from Pedro Ximenez (or PX for short) grapes, which have been dried in the sun. Drying the grapes makes them really sweet and concentrated. This wine is matured for a long time and is dark, rich and opulently sweet.

Production information

Producer: Bodegas Alvear

Warmer and more inland than Jerez, Montilla is Pedro Ximenez country and the grape is used for both dry and sweet wines. The latter are the most famous; thick, sticky, black-as-soot wines that coat your lips. Alvear’s Solera 1927 tastes like all your Christmases have arrived at once. The C.B. Fino, which is made under the same flor yeast you find in Jerez, is a big surprise too.
