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.

Small lots of old vintages are released following no apparent logic, like this 1965 Don PX Selección, which is produced with white Pedro Ximénez grapes but it's black rather than white, bottled in June 2014 with 290 grams of residual sugar. It has a nose of pure curry, aromas of an Indian restaurant, very balanced, not as sweet as others, in fact it's more bittersweet than sweet, combining the spices with bitter chocolate and with very good acidity that makes it relatively easy to drink. 9,600 bottles were filled.
