Region Spain, Montilla-Moriles
Brand Alvear
Alcohol/vol 16%
Alvear's biggest asset due to the use of Pedro Ximénez is that the grape can naturally reach 15-16% alcohol by volume on the vine - levels that Palomino could never reach. The result is that Alvear never fortifies their Finos or Amontillados (or Palo Cortados for that matter) and they only use fortification in their olorosos or sweet wines. Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada is a vintage dated sweet wine from the estate's Pedro Ximénez vineyards. The grapes are harvested at typical levels of ripeness, and dried in the blazing Montilla sun on mats in the vineyards. The wine is vinified in open clay amphora, and fortified to halt the fermentation.

The 2015 Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada is another beauty. Made from sun-dried Pedro Ximénez grapes that were fermented and aged in large clay jars, it reveals a ruby/amber color as well as a great nose of orange liqueur, brown sugar, honeyed figs, and flowers. Uber-full-bodied, thick, and vicious, it's a dessert wine geared for tiny sips. It will probably age forever.

Heady caramel, maple and toffee aromas come in front of a viscous palate. Flavors that nearly match the nose don't waver on the finish, and from head to tail this plays up the richness of sun-dried Pedro Ximénez. In almost all vintages, Alvear de Añada is an exemplary Spanish dessert wine.

Frankly sweet and thick in feel, showing pear, fig and ginger cream notes draped with marzipan and caramel layers. Fun, but maybe just a touch cloying for purists. Drink now. 3,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
