Characteristics of Alvear PX Solera 1927
Alvear PX Solera 1927 is a sweet wine from the Montilla-Moriles region produced by the Alvear winery. This wine is made using only Pedro Ximénez grapes, the most common grape of the region.
The grapes used to make Alvear PX Solera 1927 grow on calcareous soils, which have a low productivity and are poor in organic matter. These features give the fruit a unique expressiveness and aromatic power. The Pedro Ximénez grape is native to the Rhine, in Germany, but has adapted perfectly to its new Andalusian homeland.
The grapes are harvested when have reached their optimum degree of maturity. At this point they are spread out on mats to dry in the sun until they become raisins. The raisins are then pressed, to deliver an intensely rich must.
Following the steps of winemaking, Alvear Solera PX 1927 is aged American oak barrels five years. During this period the solera system is used, a process for aging liquids. This prevents fermentation and loss of sweetness. The “Solera System” for this wine was started in 1927.

Ratings for the vintages from the D.O. Montilla-Moriles
When we speak of Montilla-Moriles, we must not forget that the best Andalusian wines are not simply just produced, they grow and they bloom, much as a child grows and a flower blooms. Sharp in colour, attractive fragrances and soft on the palate. All of this, plus the unique personality, verve and subtlety of each wine, makes the wines from this region real treasures to enjoy.
