Details

A very dense wine with almost floral (purple) fragrant notes, addictive. A vintage very balanced in its sweet profile, with pronounced flavors (licorice and black olives also) which remain in the mouth for a minute. Exotic and exuberant. It's incredibly young and alive, and a very good price/performance ratio for age and the quality it offers.

Toro Albalá selects a number of wines sweet PX of a single vintage, including the first (in addition to the young wine) is the Don Px Gran Reserva 1987 in 2016 - a wine aged in barrels of American oak for 28 years. These wines are almost indestructible, so that the consumer windows are for the most part very wide. This wine displays classic aromas and the Palace of an old PX de Montilla, strong notes of dark chocolate, figs and dried plums, raisins and spices; the dense palate, thick and persistent where 380 grams of sugar unfermented are not noticeable because they are balanced by good acidity that focuses also with age.

The discovery of the PX from Toro Albalá!

Located in the village of Aguilar of the Frontera at 50 km from Córdoba, this area was founded in 1844 by Antonio Sánchez Prieto.Domaine
In 1922, José Toro Albalá, passionate about both the wine and archaeology, restores and moving the field in the former powerhouse of Aguilar, vast warehouses underground, ideal for the conservation of the wine. Some popular jokes such as "How many volts does this wine?" still remain in the region. Today is Antonio Sanchez Romero who strives to create unique, handmade, jewelry without losing the essence of his field, Pedro Ximenez, extraordinary native grape. It's a great oenologist with encyclopedic knowledge, and always inventive and lively personality. The area has revived the reputation of the wines of Montilla-Moriles and is still very influential in the region, and retains its unique processes of maturation of the wine.

Here, the Pedro Ximénez grape, native of Montilla, no is not fortified, instead wines of Jerez (Sherry? Sherry), demonstrating the potential of this native grape. The philosophy of the field is to manipulate with the most possible sweetness the grapes, not clarify or filter. This gives wines with a wonderful exotic aromas of dates, grapes and Dried apricots, of extraordinary value.

Its variety:
Pedro Ximénez is a white grape variety used in the South of the Spain, in the vineyards of Jerez, Malaga and Montilla-Moriles.
Still known by the names of Pedro Ximen, or P.X., this grape would take its name from a Charles Quint, the German soldier Peter Siemens, who would have brought this grape variety of the Valley of the Rhine until Andalusia. In the region of Jerez, Pedro Ximénez is sometimes used in mentioned to develop very sugary sweet wines, a very dark, almost black color. It is most often blended with the olorosos, sometimes the amontillados (wines dry oxidized from the palomino grape), to whom he gives the roundness. This is called cream. In the region of Montilla-Moriles, the P.X. is the grape-King. It is particularly suitable for the extreme heat of these inland areas of Andalusia.
