The ‘PX’ grapes are harvested normally and are then laid out on mats to dry in the sun until they become desiccated and raisin-like. The dried grapes are then pressed, to deliver an intensely rich juice, which is aged American oak barrels five years. The “Solera system” is then used, under which new wine is added to the top of a stack of barrels to allow old wine to be removed from the bottom. So at least some of the wine in Alvear PX Solera 1927 is pushing 100 years old!

 

Bodegas Alvear have been making wine in Montilla-Moriles for almost 300 years, and today are in possession of some of the oldest Soleras in the region.The Alvear Solera 1927 is a huge favourite of Cru staff and clients alike. This wine receives astonishing critical acclaim. Awarded 98pts from Robert Parker and 16.5/20 from Jancis Robinson, Parker writes: “Huge and viscous, yet neither cloyingly sweet nor heavy, it is a profound effort priced unbelievably low.” 98 pts, Wine Advocate
