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 made vintage Amontillados and non-fortified Finos produced with the criaderas-solera system. In its early days, starting from 1844, Bodegas Toro Albalá was mostly focused on the production of Fino-styled wines, but with the arrival of José Maria Toro Albalá in 1922, this all changed. With a reputation for being somewhat unconventional, José’s first order of business was to restore the former electric power station of Aguilar de la Frontera, and transform the 14,000m2 power plant into a winery and cellar; Amongst others, José Maria also developed Toro Albalá’s now famous wooden labels, as well as his own patented invention called ‘Trapped Air’, a novel approach to the problem of conserving wine in perfect condition. Toro Albalá’s current owner, Antonio Sánchez Romero, has invested heavily in the latest technologies to ensure maximum control at every stage of the winemaking and ageing process. Today, bodegas Toro Albalá offers a unique combination of excellent raw materials, modern technology, and respect for the traditional Montilla-Moriles methods and styles, and above all a serious commitment to making the world’s finest sweet wines.

A young, sweet, single-vintage Pedro Ximénez, the 2012 Don PX, was aged in stainless steel vats for two years and was bottled with 450 grams of residual sugar and 17% alcohol. This is extremely dense and sweet, exuberant with aromas of sugar cane, dates and golden raisins and an extremely sweet, dense palate with flavors of raisins and lowish acidity. I prefer these young wines in their initial, more exuberant phase but once they lose their youthful character they will keep in bottle forever given the high alcohol and sugar.
