Tangy, almond skin, and just the right amount of oxidization. Loads of complexity and such crazy value. Sherry truly is the best

Clean, fresh and light. Delicate and refreshing. Soft. Some light salinity. Easy to drink. Lovely summer lunch wine. Good food pairing wine.

Much more body than a typical fino. Richness balanced with bright acidity for a solid food wine.

Pretty, fresh, mouth-watering aperitif and food-friendly wine from one of the top producers in Montilla-Moriles. Alvear offers several different versions of Pedro Ximenez covering the full spectrum of styles- this one is decidedly austere, light and saline. Limestone and silica found in the unique chalk soils make these wines very vibrant and aromatic, providing great lift. 100 % PX from a single harvest, these are typically bottled after two years in neutral American oak casks and are not fortified (15% ABV). This is showing a very briny mouthfeel and savory flavors ranging from sea salt to green olives to fresh almonds. Not displaying a lot of primary fruit alongside the salinity- subtle apple, pear and other white fruit aromas. The freshness is very appealing, making for a great aperitif and we found it paired wonderfully with seafood tapas and salad. This is not traditional Sherry by any means (technically it is a Sherry-like beverage), but it's a superb value and serves its purpose quite well.

Forgotten in a corner of a wine store. Thought an 08 would be pretty weird at this point, but not so. Refreshing, rich, finish of excellence
