The oldest of the sweet wines I tried this time was the 1958 Don PX Convento Selección, a very complex and nuanced wine with notes of charred wood, tar, coal, bitter dark chocolate, licorice, roasted coffee beans and aromatic herbs. The palate is compact with no fissures and a bitterness that compensates the sweetness (it has 350 grams of sugar, so it's not a surprise that it doesn't feel as sweet as others). It's relatively dense, complex, rare and unique

Toro Albalá

Toro Albalá

Antonio Sanchez Prieto founded Bodegas Toro Albalá in 1844, in the village of Aguilar de la Frontera. By 1922, José Ma Toro Albalá restored the former electric power station of Aguilar where he moved the winery, and still is today. The Montilla-Moriles region is famous for Sherry, to create this fantastic concoction, the grapes are sun-dried into raisins before being pressed and fermented. Due to the incredible concentration of the juice, the wines are notably sweet but also wonderfully fresh. Don P.X. is their renowned Sherry, full of rich and deep flavors of raisins, figs and dates - the perfect pairing could be anything from blue cheese, to vanilla ice-cream, undoubtedly a must try. In addition to their wonderful wines, the winery’s tasting room holds an extensive wine library with more than 100,000 books. ...
Andalucia

Andalucia

Andalucia is Spain’s most southern region known for bull fighting, flamenco and in terms of wine production, sherry. It is divided into a number of sub-regions – Màlaga, Jerez and Montilla-Moriles. Though dry wines are made in the region, it is most famous for its fortified and/or sweet wines. Màlaga represents two D.O.s – Màlaga for its sweeter concoctions and Sierras de Màlaga for its drier wines, such as those within the sub-region of Ronda. Jerez also comprises two D.O.s – Manzanilla de Sanlucar de Barrameda for its lighter styled sherries with a salty tang, and Jerez for the region’s other styled sherries (both dry and sweet) produced around the town of Jerez de la Frontera. Montilla-Moriles is most known for its rich, intoxicating dessert wines produced from Pedro Ximenez, a white grape that is dried in the sun before being pressed, vinified and aged for often many years in barrel. It is intense and its greatest bottles include those from Toro Albala. ...
