ALEXANDER JULES AMONT 500ML
$39.98
Quantity

Officially it can only be categorized as an Amontillado, but Manzanilla Amontillada would have been more correct. In any case it spent around 5 years maturing as a Manzanilla (under flor). Read More...
It then received a further fortification (which kills the flor) and matured another 5 years in the oxidative way. Alexander Jules stresses the minimal processing of the wine (fining, filtering, stabilizing, etc.). The wines are essentially bottled en rama, with just a cellulose plate filtration at time of saca and a 1 micron filtration at time of bottling. None of the wines are fined, cold stabilized or exposed to active carbon.
Nose: rather soft and feminine. Still close to a Manzanilla Pasada, with chamomile and baker’s yeast. Subtle hints of bacon fat and stables. Dried porcini. Sweeter toffee notes too, even subtle pastry notes. Whiffs of yellow flowers and orange peel. On the nose it doesn’t have the tangy profile or the nuttiness of a true Amontillado.
Mouth: more Amontillado elements now, but again quite subtle, with an emphasis on elegance. There’s a pleasant acidity of lemons and oranges. No sharpness whatsoever, but the subdued acidity is very prominent. Soft hints of toffee and a gentle zesty bitterness. Evolves on briny notes with just a hint of apples in the finish.

WINERY NOTES - "Our Fino is selected from 22 of the 85 barrel Fino Celestino solera at Sanchez Romate Hnos, in Jerez de la Frontera. It is essentially bottled En Rama. This Read More...
solera contains the oldest Fino produced at the bodega, 8 years old on average. Aromas of baked custard, mature flor, and verjus, with subtle cinnamon. Pungent, aged Manchego, bright, savory and complex in the mouth. Dried fruits and flowers. It is round and concentrated with serious weight from its age."

ROBERT PARKER 98 POINTS - "The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber Read More...
with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer. 98 points,...(Nov 2015)."

While not getting near the attention given the famed dessert wines of France and Germany, some of the world’s most fabulous sweet wines are produced in an obscure corner of Spain’s Andalusia province-Montilla-Moriles. The district is home to Bodegas Alvear creators of Solera 1927 a mind boggling nectar that must be tasted to be believed. Throughout its 284-year long history, the Alvear family has managed to combine their eight generations of experience and long-term thinking to create Solera 1927. The PX (Pedro-Ximenez) grapes for this bottling are generally planted on exceptionally chalky soils that produce low yields (1.2 tons/acre) and optimally ripe grapes. Sugars are further concentrated by drying the berries on straw mats under the sun. A dense must is then obtained from the crushed raisins to produce a viscous “raisin juice”. The unique aging process of the Solera System, which in this case was inaugurated in 1927, ensures an intriguing mix of youthful and long aged flavors, as well as an amazingly high level of quality from bottling to bottling. Robert Parker awarded a prior incarnation this PX 96 points a few years back, and he has now awarded this edition a staggering 98 Points. Now that’s consistency! When one factors in its long aging along with the cost of fruit and the myriad of man-hours involved in maintaining the Solera, this under-the-radar find represents one of the most fantastic values in all the world of wine. In addition to a wide array of desserts, Solera 1927 is marvelous with blue-veined chesses and toasted almonds.
BACALHOA MOSCATEL 12
BACALHOA MOSCATEL DE SETUBAL 12 COLHEITA
Item: #378270

At one time the Moscatel (Muscat) wines of Setabul were rightly counted and priced with the world’s greatest dessert wines. Rather mysteriously they fell out of favor after the Second Read More...
World War, so today even the best examples like this nectar from Bacalhoa remain woefully under priced. Bacalhoa first came to our attention in the fall of 2011 when their 2004 vintage won the International Trophy for the best sweet fortified wine under 10 pounds at Decanter Magazine’s annual World Wine Awards competition. This 2012 is another stunning value that delivers intense aromas of fresh grape juice tinged with orange blossom, lemon drops, tea and raisins. In the mouth, the orange and caramesl tinged fruit is intense and viscous while the finish is persistent and balanced.

the toffee component rounding out the finish. It is not as complex as Barbeito’s Rainwater, but should offer pleasure if slightly chilled and served as an aperitif."

WINERY NOTES-"Aspect: Mahogany and coppery hints. Nose: Notes of acetaldehydes, piquant, with marine aromas, reminiscent of fish markets, salted and Read More...
smoked meat and fish, nuts and bitter almonds. Palate: Extremely dry and salty, it is a long, complex wine, notably dry and persistent, which makes it a good accompaniment to a wide variety of food. Gastronomy: For all its gustative characteristics, Amontillado is a wine which requires dishes of strong contrasts, such as pickles (gherkins, olives, aubergines in vinegar), salted fish (such as anchovies or cod), smoked fish (sturgeon, eel and tuna fish), caviar, herring and, of course, vinegar dominant dishes, such as pickled food and spicy dishes including those of oriental cuisine. Serving Temperature: We recommend it be served lightly chilled. Storage: If the bottle is unopened, this wine will remain in perfect condition and even improve with time. Once the bottle has been opened, the wine will remain in perfect condition for up to 12 months.

WINE ENTHUSIAST 90 POINTS- The Madeira regulations say that 10-years old is the age of the youngest part of the blend. So this richly sweet Malmsey contains Read More...
many older wines. These are shown in the old gold color, the proper citrus acidity and the dryness that goes with wood aging. At the end, though, the liquid honey flavors are dominant. Aged in oak casks for at least 10 years. A superb, full-bodied, wonderfully rich Madeira with a sweet, rich chocolaty flavor and a concentrated bouquet. Best enjoyed with desserts, or on its own after a meal. But when accompanied by cookies, fruit pies, even dark chocolate desserts it pairs wonderfully! Sweetest Madeiea (8%/10% Rs)

Aromas of old wood and candied, roasted nuts lead to a very bright, energetic palate. Flavors of candied orange, toffee and buttered pecans are perfectly balanced by lively acidity. Read More...
Though this is fortified wine and we have it listed as a "dessert wine," it really would be best served as either an aperitif, served slightly chilled, or paired with the right dish -- seared scallops work quite well, as would any richer, cream and/or cheese-based dish.

pliant and vinous; not especially glyceral or unctuous but shows lovely framing acidity to the intense flavors of blackberry, black cherry, fruitcake and minerals. This suave, fine-grained wine builds nicely in the mouth and finishes with firm tannins, a restrained sweetness and lovely lift. A distinctly wine-like port, bottled for the U.S. importer by Niepoort. My favorite vintage to date under this label."
