Alamis is said to be one of Pedro Ximenez’s synonyms, which is also found in the beautiful land of Spain. This grape variety is usually used in producing some of the darkest and stickiest wines made anywhere.
Characteristics of Alamis
The vines of this variety bear large compact, thick-skinned berries that are not uniform since they have smaller in size berries.
Also, they bud and ripen mid; vigorous and normally productive. They are eminently prone to diseases like botrytis bunch rot and downy mildew but less prone to powdery mildew as well as esca, eutypa dieback and termites.
Characteristics of Alamis Wines
Alamis grapes produce fortified similar to sherry wines as well as unfortified wines of different styles with fair levels of alcohol and low in acidity.
The Alamis from Chile produces mostly distilled wines which are refreshing and fruity dry, however, in Australia wines of Alamis are normally unfortified blends that are fine, rich and golden colored.

Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
