TASTING NOTES

From soleras and reserve stocks approaching a century in age, this rich yet elegant dry Oloroso averages fifteen years old and displays a round, velvety texture and a long finish reminiscent of walnuts and hazelnuts. Well balanced from its long stay in an oxidative criadera system, it is the ideal companion for sauced meats and stews.

Poley OIoroso en Rama Solera 15 yr - "Names have changed and all labels are new. They are all named Poley and have a reference to the number of average years the wines have spent in the solera, like the NV Poley Oloroso en Rama Solera 15 Años, which is an Oloroso with 18 percent alcohol and 15 years of average age. It is young, faintly oxidative with a lightish palate and soft flavors. A small Oloroso. All Poley wines now come in 500 milliliter bottles. There's no clear indication of saca or bottling date. 2022 - 2025"

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.
