The Toro Albalá winery began in the heart of Southern Cordoba in 1922, which is famous for its wine region Montilla-Moriles. Toro Albala winery has received awards in recognition of its constancy in the world of viticulture.  Patience bears sweet fruit, something which winemaker and enologist Antonio Sánchez knows well, having dedicated all his life to this and for whom the Pedro Ximénez grapes are as if they were his own offspring, grown under the best conditions to ensure sufficient character and to be a part of the most wonderful dinner gatherings.  This project has spanned many years, generations in fact.

From a solera approaching a century in production, this rich yet almost fully dry Oloroso averages 15 years of age. Toro Albalá Oloroso is fleshy, with a round and velvety texture and a long, vibrant finish. Unfortified again, the nose throws hints of caramel, orange rind and toasted almonds. The palate is mellow and super-complex, with lively freshness and complex flavours of quince, bitter orange and loads of brown spice and tobacco notes. The finish is long and iodine-rich. Perfect to drink on its own or sensational with almonds, charcuterie and very mature cheese.

The color is a bright orange, and the youthful nose is redolent of dry apricots, toffee and walnuts. Medium- to full-bodied, velvety, it has the telltale toffee and caramel flavors of an Oloroso. The strong bitter note makes an appearance again in the finish. - Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
