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 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.

They do a bottling in March every year, and I tasted the NV Fino Eléctrico del Lagar, bottled with an average age of ten years. Every March they take the wine they are going to sell in the next 12 months and transfer it to stainless steel vats, where it's kept to be bottled unfined and unfiltered; they bottle it almost when they receive the orders, to offer a wine as fresh as possible. This Fino del Lagar is bottled with ten years of flor. Bright-colored and with some greenish tints, the nose is a mixture of yeasts, dry herbs and wet chalk. The palate is medium-bodied, with a very tasty finish, a little dusty, ending salty. These PX Finos are always fatter than those produced with Palomino, with character and some rusticity. 40,000 bottles. The price given is for 500-milliliters. Wine Advocate 89
