1927 Alvear Pedro Ximenez Solera- 375 ml
Wine Critic Reviews:
Robert Parker | 98 RP
One of the world's best PX wines is Solera 1927, the pride of Alvear. Whatever solera stocks went into this bottling were well selected. Aromas of maple and fine wood turn to fig and caramel. Saturation and weight on the palate are expected, but this has some (though not a lot) acidic cut. Deep flavors of fig and Nutella finish with nuttiness and warmth. Drink or hold.
Wine Enthusiast | 96 WE
Almost like English Christmas pudding in liquid form. This very dark and mature pedro ximénez takes no prisoners. Enormously powerful, but actually rather well balanced. Drink now.
James Suckling | 91 JS
This rich sweetie hangs languidly, with date, rum raisin, almond cream and Turkish coffee notes lolling through, backed by toffee and toasted peanut details. Dessert on its own. Drink now. 500 cases made.

|Region||Spain: Spain is home to some absolutely masterfully crafted wines. Their culture gets romanticized in many works of prose, and it's easy to see where the appeal lies. The wines serve as an extension of that culture and stand among the tallest titans in the world. With powerhouse varietals like Airen, Tempranillo and Grenache brought to their full potential, these bottles hold a unique appeal without sacrificing what makes wine approachable and popular. Imagine an inspirational guitar performance. The artist's fingers are darting around accurately, and it's hard to keep track of all his hand movements. All you know is that he is making the strings dance vivaciously and produce a veritable symphony of intricately woven notes, each note adding something unique and pleasant to the overall composition. That's what sampling a Spanish wine is like. The wines are fresh, possessing an intense yet elegant fruitiness to them that feels like you're enjoying a healthy bowl of fruit salad on the side. Whatever your preference may be, Spanish wines are an essential, unmissable part of wine culture. You'd be doing yourself a disservice if you skipped out on these amazing drinks, which is why we've arranged a selection of only the finest wines Spain has to offer.|
|Type of Wine||Dessert White: In the minds of many wine lovers, no food pairing matches the appeal of a dessert and an appropriate dessert wine. For those of us with a pronounced sweet tooth, dessert whites come in many shapes, sizes, and, most importantly, varietals. Whether you're dealing with an Austrian Pinot Blanc or a sweet German Riesling, it's hard to resist for long.|
Simply ExqusiteI find that people who enjoy fine wine often also have a sweet tooth… it’s certainly the case for me! So imagine my glee when one of these bottles arrived at my doorstep, with that tempting amber glow. I made the purchase hoping to sample some hazelnut, crème brulee, and maple syrup, and I got even more than I bargained for.
The wine is simply exquisite, and it feels creamy, gentle, and rich on the palate. It’s like drinking honey, and the sweetness will only amplify that impression! I feel like after drinking this wine, my sugary cravings won’t kick in for a full month; it’s that delicious. I invited my neighbor over, and we were both astounded.
The best part? You don’t have to empty your wallet to afford one of these bottles. They’re so affordable that I’m considering securing almost a dozen bottles for later. What an experience!
Wonderful WineWonderful wine. My wife and I were looking for a new brand to test out, but we wanted to opt for something affordable and accessible, something we could easily take a risk on. Needless to say, we were blown away! This wine costs so little, yet it feels like we got to drink from one of the most expensive and prestigious barrels in the world!
One of the strongest flavors in here is marmalade, and given the wine’s thick, almost creamy appearance, it’s quite fitting! The maple syrup was where my wife fell in love with the wine, and the nutty overtones are very cozy, like a special treat you’d get from Grandma back in the day. The textures and overall mouthfeel are splendid, with a generous finish.
We ordered extra bottles. With wines these good, you can never guarantee their availability for too long, and we have no regrets!
