Tasting Notes

WA95

Older is not necessarily better. The extreme 1929 Don PX Convento Selección is a thick, dense and unusual, rare sweet beast. It is very dark with a green border, dense, oily and serious full-bodied palate with the profile of a PX from Jerez. With 500 grams of residual sugar per liter, it is a little monolithic, a little heavy and not so easy to drink. Still it is an impressive, very sweet wine that is really unique. 6,200 bottles were filled in September 2014.

The Winery

Bodegas Toro Albala

Bodegas Toro Albala plays an important role in the history of sherry. Being the first producer to commercialize Pedro Ximenez as a single variety wine, the winery expanded drastically and quickly and now makes a range of high-end wines. It all began in the countryside of Cordoba, Spain in 1922 when a farmer by the name of Jose Maria Toro Albala began aging wines. Until the 1930s, Fino wines were the most popular among Andalusian workers at the local bars. The winery was located on what used to be a power plant and the workers would joke that the wine possessed electricity, giving the famous nickname “Electrico” to the fino wines. By the 1960s, winemaker and nephew of Jose, Antonio Sanchez, took over and began giving his own identity to the brand. With steady quality and a standard flavor profile, his specialties have become the aromatic amontillados and unrivaled Don Pedro Ximénez wines.
