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Century; these ‘foundational’ soleras, from which very small quantities of extremely old and concentrated wines are withdrawn and bottled from time to time, produce some of the best wines in the world.

The NV Fino Gran Barquero is aged 8-10 years under flor, pushing the limits of biological aging, which gives it a different profile: It is a big step up in quality, but it would probably be better with less filtration. It has a fresh, flowery nose hinting at some citric and even tropical fruits intermixed with the dry hay, straw, yeasty and chalky notes. It has the profile of a serious, first-class Fino that shows in a clean, pungent, balanced palate, with incisive flavors, supple and long. A good-value, great Fino that could develop some more complexity in bottle. Wine Advocate 92
