Natalie's Score: 92/100
This lovely sweet-style Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 Sherry is not vintage dated but does have some wine from the 1927 vintages blended in. Dark-hued, rich and complex with aromas of fig jam, molasses and espresso. Great dessert wine.
Sherry food pairings: blue cheeses, salted nuts, fruit cake.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
This wine, technically not a Sherry since it lies outside the "Sherry Triangle," is a wonderfully different selection from Alvear.
This is not their well known solera fractional blended wine, but a single vintage dated offering. The 1927 has some aged notes and some fresh. It is a combination of multiple vontages to produce a consistent style of complexity and intensity.
This one shows Pedro Ximenez from a single point in time.
This wine is much lighter looking than the solera blended 1927. It is an orangey amber, instead of diesely, orangey black.
It has so much aromatic prettiness to offer. Orange blossom, caramel, smoke, tangerine, chocolate, vanilla, and one could go on...
Flavourwise, it is lusciously sweet and super mouthfilling. Baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg etc), chocolate orange, lemon, baked apple, maple and saffron.
Over time, it would be lovely to see how this wine ages on its own in bottle. It is a true expression of the much loved grape of Montilla-Moriles.
|From Montilla-Moriles in Spain, Alvear Pedro Ximenez De Añada (2014) has some of 1927 Solera vintage in it. The sherry is dark with honey, ripe figs, toffee and roast notes. Although this sherry can definitely hold for 15 years or better, at 375 ml, it's too decadently delicious to make it to 2032. - Community Wine Reviews|
