Vino Montilla Oloroso “Asuncion” (500ml)

50cl Bodegas Alvear Pedro Ximenez, Spain > Montilla-Morilles Fortified
Oloroso Asuncion is a fortified style with spirit added to halt fermentation and achieve high alcohol content. The wine then matures in oak barrels where no Flor occurs, for more than 10 years. The wine has an incredible balance of sweet, deep raisiny flavours and a crisp, dry, full and long finish.

Alvear is an historic sherry bodega founded by Don Diego de Alvear in 1729, the oldest winery in Andalusia. Still controlled by the Alvear family (8th generation), they produce what are widely considered some of the finest wines of DO Montilla-Morilles. The production focuses on the local Pedro Ximenez (or PX) varietal and the winery produce a wide range of Sweet, Fino, Oloroso and Amontillado styles.
