      Winemaker Notes

      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.

      Alvear  Winery Image
      Alvear S.A. was established by Don Diego de Alvear in 1729, and since that time has remained under control of the Alvear family. This is the oldest winery in the region and its fino is today one of the three most popular fino wines in Spain. Located in the town of Montilla, in the province of Cordoba, in the interior of Andalucia. Grapes are sourced from their own vineyards, of 307.2 acres. They also buy grapes and wines from local growers. The area is dominated by small parcels. The terrain is formed by undulating hills and slopes of a singular whitish color. There are two basic types of soil: Albero and Arenas. Albero is a whitish, chalky soil, found on the higher ground in the Sierra de Montilla and Moriles Alto, both of which are classified as superior zones and produce finos of good, clean character. This type of soil is highly absorbent and can supply the vines with needed water during the long, dry summers. The sun bakes the surface to a hard crust, reflecting the heat and preventing the moisture from evaporating. Arenas is found in the Ruedos made up of largely sand, with some stony clay and a small proportion of limestone. The climate is Southern continental, with hot summers, reaching at times temperatures of 120°F, resulting in early harvests. The temperature drops sharply at night, cooling the fermenting musts. Winters are cold.
