Bodegas Toro Albalá Marques de Poley Cream
Bodegas Toro Albalá Marques de Poley Cream is a cream sherry. Mahogany colour with amber glints. Rich and strong bouquet of raisins in chocolate, toasted walnuts and caramel. Creamy thick on the palate with a texture of freshly harvested honey. Sweet yet delicate flavours of salted caramel and nuts carry far into the finish.
100% Pedro Ximénez. Bodegas Toro Albalá creates wines with 30% of grapes from their own vineyards and 70% coming from partner growers in Montilla-Moriles.
The fruit is made into Oloroso sherry and blended over 10 years in a solera system, a method that adds fresh wine to old wine and builds complexity in flavour and aroma.
