Eléctrico Fino del Lagar - "An attractive, fino-type wine with the salty character of this style married to plenty of candied pear aroma. Powerful, slightly tannic finish. Pure pedro xime?nez."

Eléctrico Fino del Lagar - "Very dry and vivid fino with a cement, salted nut and dried lemon character. Medium body, attractive fruit and a clean finish. Drink now."

Eléctrico Fino del Lagar - "Montilla Moriles is often forgotten or ignored next to the sherries of Jerez, its Andalucian neighbor. The finos of Montilla Moriles seem similar to fino sherries, even though they are made with a different grape, Pedro Ximenez, rather than palomino. The Electrico from Toro Albala shares the fino aromatic qualities of nuts and chamomile, but it is a touch fruitier, though still dry and refreshing. Try it with ham or chicken biryani. 20 Wines Under 20 Dollars - Postcards From Around the World"

History: This prestigious family estate was founded in 1844 in Aguilar de la Frontera by the great-grandfather of current owner Antonio Sánchez. In 1922 José María Toro Albalá moved the facilities to the current location in Aguilar’s old power station, introducing updated technologies and establishing Toro Albalá as Montilla’s quality leader. In 1970, Toro Albalá became the first Montilla producer to bottle Dessert Pedro Ximénez—a product historically sold in bulk to producers and shippers in D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry for aging and blending. Toro Albalá remains the world’s only specialist in the commercialization of 100% Vintage Dessert PX, their Gran Reserva aged a minimum of 25 years in barrel before release.

Bodegas Toro Albalá owns significant vineyard acreage in Aguilar de la Frontera and Moriles, exclusively Pedro Ximénez vines planted in chalky-white albariza soils. Grapes from older head-pruned vines are destined to the meticulous production of vintage dessert wines, whereas newer wire-trained vineyards provide fresher fruit with brighter acids for the production of impeccably clean, complex and smooth Fino, Amontillado and Oloroso containing only the natural alcohol from fermentation.
