Alvear Pedro Ximenez 10 yearl old vinegar is made from 100% Pedro Ximenez aged fortified wine from the D.O. Montilla-Moriles, and then kept for another five years in American oak casks in a Solera and Criaderas system with a regular blending from cask to cask.
This vinegar has a dark mahogany colour with a very intense nose and aromas typical for the fortified wine from which it is made. On the palate, the acidity is tempered by the long stay in old oak casks.
Ideal as an ingredient in cold and warm sea-food salads, meat dishes and pickles.
Throughout its 284-year long history, Bodegas Alvear has managed to hold on to its family traits, passing ownership from parent to child so that currently the business is in the hands of the eighth generation. Bodegas Alvear has the capacity to age 5 million litres of wine in oak wine butts that are distributed around various bodegas: La Sacristía and El Liceo, where the oldest wines are stored; Las Mercedes, known widely as C.B., and Las Higueras and Buganvillas, where the Pedro Ximénez wines are aged. The bodega called ‘de la Casa’, Alvear’s first property, which is located in the old town centre, is regarded as a site of Historic and Artistic Interest. This 18th century former manor house hosts the region’s oldest ‘soleras’ which contain 200-year old Amontillado wines.
