alvear px solera 1927
COLOR: A naturally sweet wine, of dark dense mahogany colour.
NOSE: Deep rich nose with reminiscent of prunes and chocolate.
PALATE: sumptuous wine of great intensity, rich concentrated fruit in the mouth with a full, rich, succulence, seemingly unending finish.
FOOD PAIRING: The right wine to end a meal in a marvellous way, to sip with dessert or as a topping for ice cream, fruit-salads and pastries or with blue cheese. Delicious refreshment with ice.
The impressive 1927 Pedro Ximenez Solera, from a Solera begun nearly 80 years ago, boasts a dark amber color as well as an extraordinary nose of creme brulee, liquefied nuts, marmalade, and maple syrup. Huge and viscous, yet neither cloyingly sweet nor heavy, it is a profound effort priced unbelievably low. It is meant to be drunk alone at the end of a meal.
