TASTING NOTES

Offered previously as 'Un Vino Viejísimo', 30 years old-the minimum for fine Amontillado at Toro Albalá. Great intensity with an explosion of nut, dried fruit and leather aromas and an endless finish. Alcoholic degree is obtained solely through natural fermentation and long aging. The original, inimitable A'montilla'do.

PRESS

Marqués de Poley Viejísimo - Amontillado Solera 1922 (1922) - "Made from pedro ximénez, this is succulent and powerful. The acidity is firm, spreading salty and iodine notes over a lightly caramelized base. Enjoy it with salted almonds."

Marqués de Poley Viejísimo - Amontillado Solera 1922 - "I love the caramelized nuts and dried apricots on the nose. Mouth-filling and rich with a ton of nutty character on the palate, plus some tannins that are covered nicely by the richness. Pure pedro xime?nez. Drink now."

Marqués de Poley Viejísimo - Amontillado Solera 1922 - "The soft texture of this Amontillado, along with a subtle sweetness, converts it into an approachable wine, seemingly easy to understand. With air, the complexity of its flavors appears, bringing in notes of green olives and salted nuts that contrast the caramelized finish. Not at all tiring, on the contrary, this invites another sip. For smoked trout."

Marqués de Poley Viejísimo - Amontillado Solera 1922 - "The NV Amontillado Viejísimo Solera 1922 Marques De Poley, produced from Pedro Ximénez grapes aged in a solera of old American oak barrels under flor and later put through oxidative aging. It wears a medium amber color with green edges denoting old age (around 35 years) and a creamy nose of sweet hazelnuts, spices and a touch of smoke. Medium-bodied, with lively acidity and pungent flavors, it ends with an intense, bitter finish. Drink 2013-2016."

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.
