Reviews and Ratings

Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

Each time I drink a Sherry, I cannot fathom how Spaniards can craft such a complex long ageing wine at such a modest price. And, this splendid Alvear Solera 1027 Pedro Ximenez further compounds the mystery.

This wine is a non-vintage because it is assembled from a barrel ageing system called a Solera, which includes fraction of the wines from each and every vintage created since 1927. The result is a rich, unctuous, dark nectar which smells and tastes of sweet raisins, prunes, ripe figs, salted caramel, walnuts, coffee, and dark chocolate orange peels. Score 96. (Reviewed Nov. 2016)
Pedro Ximénez from Montilla-Moriles' Alvear Solera 1927 is dark, sticky, lush and great over any ice cream, PX also stands up to a rich chocolate moose or ganache, and rich cream blue cheese with fresh fruit. Just be ready for the sugar rush. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
