Toro Albalá Don Px Gran Reserva 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark mahogany with iodine tinged edge. Thick wine tears. Balsamic on the nose with pronounced notes of carob bean, marinades, liquorice, and raisined plums. These fragrances suddenly evolve into marked herbal fragrances, as that of Leyland cypress, dry banana leaf or spices like Madagascar pepper. Evocative of toasted flavors, caramel and honey. Elegant and long in the palate, with retronasal effect that releases raisined plums again and the complexity of raisined fruits. Indeed, a sweet wine with a perfect balance. Easy to sip and not tiring, with a lingering finish. A complex and intense wine that pairs perfectly with dark chocolate having a high cocoa percentage, such as that of Madagascar or Ethiopia. Other options include the semifreddo, or even some medium-flavored blue cheeses. This wine is produced with Pedro Ximenez grapes. After harvest, they follow sun-drying process until becoming raisins.The wine is then aged in American oak barrels. Info:No time limit for wine storage and it improves with age even in opened bottle. Store in a cool, dry place away from light and direct heat.

Bodegas Toro Albalá is considered to be one of the 100 Spanish Gold Wineries of the 21st century. Located in the village of Aguilar de la Frontera, 50 km from Córdoba, Bodegas Toro Albalá was foundedin 1944 by Antonio Sánchez Prieto in a mill named La Noria, near the castle of this village. From then on, sales started using home made equipment. Un 1922, Jóse Mª Toro Albalá restored the former electric power station of Aguilar and moved the winery to this place (14,000 m2). This is compound of plenty of tunnels; perfect for the ageing and conservation of dry wines-hence the name of Eléctrico (electrical) or some wines. In the city of Córdoba there are two sayings: "Electrify me" and "What is the voltage of the wine?"   Read less
