Wine Style: Vin Doux Naturel
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Toro Albala
Toro Albalá was founded in 1844 and is located in Aguilar de la Frontera some 50 kilometres south of Córdoba, in an old electricity generating station, where its founder – the dreamily eccentric Antonio Sánchez – not only has the most extraordinary wine library but a whacky museum crammed with just about anything that one could collect if one had a mind to: prehistoric rocks, mineral and crystal fragments, coke bottles, old bits of machinery, cameras, guns, and even a skeleton in manacles found many years ago on his land – which amounts to some 37 hectares.
PX can produce on the one hand thick, luscious young wines (often consisting of as much as 50% natural sugar) or - when aged, often with the addition of old Amontillado and arrope - dark, sumptuous bitter sweet wines that combine flavours of molasses, treacle, figs, and coffee and take 30 or 40 years to thin out into something akin to Madeira - but are of course best enjoyed long before this.
Don PX Dulce Natural falls into the first category – serve chilled with pâté or powerful blue cheese; whereas the barrique-aged Don PX Gran Reserva falls into the second and should either be drizzled over ice-cream or partnered with Christmasmas pudding, mince pies, Wensleydale or simply enjoyed on its own.
