Bodegas Toro Albalá Marques de Poley Palo Cortado

Bodegas Toro Albalá Marques de Poley Palo Cortado has a suggestion of sweetness and a velvety texture. Amber colour with copper reflections. The noble and elegant nose is filled with aromas of sweet caramel, tobacco spice, roasted nuts and candied orange peel. Dry and voluminous entry to the intense palate, which seems to reminisce over its time spent in old wood barrels. Nice flavours of raisins, tobacco and warm woody notes mingle with orange peel and hazelnuts.

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 wine goes through a long and traditional ageing process in a "crianza" system, although wines from Montilla can't call themselves sherry. The wine ages in the subterranean tunnels of the old winery building, which holds approximately 6000 barrels, some containing the oldest wines available in Andalucía.
