Two Spanish Wines Receive Perfect 100-Point Scores in Guía Peñín

The wines, both from Andalusia, are Alvear Pedro Ximénez Solera 1830 and Conde de Aldama Amontillado “Bota No”

Two wines from Spain have achieved something truly spectacular, something no other wines from Spain have ever achieved. Two wines, both from Spain’s Andalusia region, received perfect 100 point scores in the prestigious Guía Peñín.

The first wine is Alvear Pedro Ximénez Solera 1830, which is produced by the centuries-old winery Alvear, founded in 1729, in Montilla-Moriles DO. This dessert wine is low in acidity, has a smooth palate, a short finish, and a soft mouthfeel. Its brown-sugar aromas and flavors of white raisin and chocolate make it the perfect accompaniment to a sweet dish.

The second wine with a perfect score is Conde de Aldama Amontillado “Bota No,” from Bodegas Yuste. It’s an Amontillado from Jerez-Xérès-Sherry and Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda DO made with Palomino grapes. This noteworthy wine is extremely aromatic and has notes of toasted hazelnuts, marmalade, plum jam, and walnut husks. It also has hints of nutmeg and exotic wood. In particular, it offers a wonderful mix of spicy, sweet, and salty.

This is the type of recognition that all wines strive for, so these sherries’ perfect score is an extremely notable achievement.
