"Tasting old sweet PX from Toro Albalá is like a roller coaster ride, which started with the 1988 Don PX Gran Reserva, what for them is their more commercial range, a wine that at close to 30 years of age is still unbottled. They compared it with the 1981 (which I never tasted), because it was a warm year with an exceptional harvest. It has 16.4% alcohol, 340 grams of residual sugar and mixes notes of youth, raisins, figs and dates with other aromas of a long aging like tar, graphite, chocolate and licorice. It doesn't feel too sweet but compared with the other wines tasted next to it, it doesn't have the complexity or depth." 93pts Robert Parker
After a minimum of 25 years and a dramatic loss to evaporation, vintages are selected for bottling only upon having attained classic vintage character: opaque, black mahogany color with a notably bitter and balanced complexity.
Toro Albalá is one of the Top 100 Spanish Gold Wineries of the 21st century. We are located right in Cordoba’s charming countryside, at Aguilar de la Frontera and Moriles towns. We officially became a business in 1922 when Jose María Toro Albalá started the initial project of the winery we are today.
