Winemaker Notes

Alvear is one of the most historic wineries in Spain. It is the oldest family owned winery in Spain, the second oldest winery, and the oldest winery in Andalucía, making it the historic producer of sherry style wines produced in Montilla-Moriles, the home of the Pedro Ximénez grape. With the Tres Miradas project, their latest collaboration with the dynamic Envinate team, they hoped to express the terroir of their home, Montilla-Moriles, but without the interference of the ageing process used to produce classic styles of Montilla. These produce some of the best sherry-style wines in Spain, but remove the terroir of the vineyard through the ageing process. With Tres Miradas, they followed the Burgundian classification by producing one village wine, and three single vineyards or "crus."

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The full clusters of Pedro Ximénez used for the production of the 2017 3 Miradas Vino de Pueblo were pressed and then the juice fermented in tinaja (amphora) or were foot trodden in open plastic bins, and the wine matured under a veil of yeast for eight months. 2017 was a warm and dry year with a short crop of very ripe grapes. This is the blend of all the different plots, therefore the village wine. This is the most expressive of the 3 Miradas wines I tasted, with a more developed nose and more aromas reminiscent of a Fino, with the nutty and spicy notes from the aging under flor amplified by some time in bottle. It's also a year that seems to be developing at a little bit of a faster pace, and the wine shows superb right now. Think of this as a light Fino with 13% alcohol.

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.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

The grape with the coolest name and some of the greatest fame in the wine-growing world, Pedro Ximénez is responsible for a handful of radically different wine styles. A white variety grown in Andalucia, Spain, it is primarily used in the production of sweet, late harvest Sherry as well as for crisp, dry whites. It is also grown in New South Wales, Australia to produce the rich and golden McWilliam’s Pedro Sauterne and in Chile for Pisco production as well as a lovely varietal dry white from the Elqui Valley.
