Tasting Notes

17% ABV. Toro Albalá reserve select lots of their best vintage wines for later release under the Gran Reserva label. These rich and complex Pedro Ximénez wines are destined for a very long ageing in oak barrels. After filling and sealing, these barrels are left for decades in their single-vintage state. It's during this slow maturation that the wines undertake their delicious, savoury, rancio transformation (through controlled exposure to oxygen) which brings a kind of nutty, iodine character that infinitely complexes the sweet, fruit cakey wine but also gives it added freshness. Naturally, as the wines concentrate in flavour and texture, the colour darkens and the mouth-feel thickens. Vintages are selected for release after a minimum of 25 years in barrel and only when they have attained these classic hallmarks of aged PX. With 380 grams of residual and 17% alcohol this is a terrific vintage for this wine as the note below makes clear. - Importer Note

 

Founded in 1844, Toro Albalá is arguably the best producer of Pedro Ximenez in the world today with the finest vineyard holdings in Montilla (the region for Pedro) and the oldest stocks. Toro Albalá was the first Montilla producer to commercialize bottled, dessert-styled Pedro Ximénez (in 1970) and remains the world's only specialist in 100% vintage PX. Impeccable and authentic Fino, Amontillado and Oloroso, containing only the natural alcohol from fermentation, are also produced by the classic solera method. Bodegas Toro Albalá owns significant vineyard acreage in Aguilar de la Frontera and Moriles; planted exclusively to Pedro Ximénez vines that are planted in the chalky-white, albariza soils. Grapes from the older bush vines are destined for the vintage dessert wines, whereas newer wire-trained vineyards provide fresher fruit with brighter acids for the production of the dryer styles. These are all wonderful wines, full of character and power. The sweet Pedro's have to be tasted to be believed and the prices speak for themselves. - Importer Note
