#5 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2017

Rich and extravagant, Alvear PX 1927 is the decadent dessert wine to end all others. It is made by spreading ripe Pedro Ximenez grapes out on mats to dry in the sun until they become raisins. When pressed, these deliver an intensely rich must to which grape alcohol is added to prevent fermentation and loss of sweetness. The wine is then aged using the "Solera" barrel system, which for this wine started in 1927.

Deep rich nose reminiscent of prunes and chocolate. On the palate sumptuous, reminiscent of golden syrup, chocolate, prunes and also a lift of citrusy freshness.

Pair it with nutty desserts such as pecan pie or tarta de Santiago, or savoury options such as creamy sheep cheese or roasted quail with figs. Can also be served with or over ice cream (vanilla bean, salted caramel, toasted macadamia).

98/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (NV)
"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."

96/100 & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast (NV)
"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 flavours of fig and Nutella finish with nuttiness and warmth."
