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Century; these ‘foundational’ soleras, from which very small quantities of extremely old and concentrated wines are withdrawn and bottled from time to time, produce some of the best wines in the world.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 Oloroso Gran Barquero is produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes aged oxidatively in a solera system for 25-30 years on average. It displays a dark amber color and a complex nose of cigar ash, candied apricots and roasted nuts. The palate is ample, velvety, with good structure, without the rusticity some attribute to the wines of Montilla, and very slightly off-dry, which makes it very approachable. Wine Advocate 92
