Description
 
Bodegas Toro Albalá is the only true specialist of vintage Pedro Ximénez in the world. In addition to their highly sought-after sweet wines, Toro Albalá also produces impeccably Bodegas Pérez Barquero was established in 1905, in the historic town of Montilla, due south of the city of Córdoba. For well over a century, Pérez Barquero has been dedicated to the production of the highest quality Finos, Olorosos, Amontillados and sweet Pedro Ximénez wines, as well as premium brandies. The winery still houses some soleras from the turn of the 19th Century; these ‘foundational’ soleras, from which very small quantities of extremely old and concentrated wines are withdrawn and bottled from time to time, produce some of the best wines in the world.

I tasted two bottlings of their NV Gran Barquero Fino en Rama, which now has a very clear "Saca de Primavera 2018" subtitle (bottling from the spring of 2018) on the front label. It's from a solera that averages eight to ten years of age, so the effect of the flor on the wine is very long and is pushing it to the maximum. This earlier bottling has had some time to rest, develop and show more depth; it's a touch more oxidative and also has a darker color and a more pronounced nose, with the classical aromas. The palate is round with no edges, but it's also long and sharp with pungent flavors and a salty finish. It achieved 15% alcohol without being fortified. 1,200 bottles produced. The price is for a half-liter bottle. Wine Advocate 93
