Viticulture

The grape (Pedro Ximénez), the soil (Albariza) and the climate (extreme summer) are determining factors in the viticulture of Montilla wines.

Soils

Albarizas (white loam, chalky) soil

Climate

Continental - Hot days - Cool nights during growing seasons. Semi Arid.

Winemaking

Criaderas and solera system, traditional method involving rows of casks of old american oak under a clear layer of yeast know as the “Velo de flor”. After it is lightly sweetened with concentrated must. It is a pale sweet wine, which preserves the colour and freshness of the Fino with a gentle sweetness that combines beautifully together.

Ageing

Our Alvear Pale Cream is aged in a biological way under a clear layer that the yeast creates on top of the wine, known as the velo de flor, that prevents the wine from oxidation and gives it its characteristic aroma and flavour. Ageing: At least 2 years

Comments

Alvear Cream is an Oloroso sweetened with Pedro Ximénez sweet wine. Gold in colour with a delicate and flowery aroma. It is a lightly sweetned Fino with a medium-sweet flavour. The palate is gorgeous with subtle suggestions of flowers, dried fruit, toasted nuts and an uncloying sweetness. Dark and creamy.
