The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. 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.
Alvear was founded in 1729 and remains under the control of the same family. They own 307 acres of vineyards in the Montilla-Moriles appellation. Anyone who visits the area recognizes the incredible white soils, which are dominated by chalk/limestone and the key to the great acids these product possess.

Fresh, fruity and supple, this wine is an easy every day drinker from a great Rhone producer. Contains Sulphites
Dehydrated raspberries and strawberries with some lovely chorizo like spice and a bit of gentle alcohol warmth. It is just a really tasty, summery wine.
Dark fruit, leather and liquorice with a balanced cherry and spice palate and a hint of green on the finish. Contains Sulphites
