If someone told you to keep a wine for 84 years in a cask before bottling it, you'd think they were crazy, wouldn't you? Well, that's what the folks at Toro Albala in Aguilar de la Frontera (...) have done with their 1931 Don PX Conventon Selection. This is part of what they call "vinos olvidados" which means "forgotten wines". The disk is yellow, with green highlights that denote a very great age. Such age provides an unusual range of aromas and flavours, with iodine and salt nuances offsetting the sweetness (403 gr.) and even the alcohol (18%). It's terribly balsamic, with notes of dry herbs and spices, cigar ash, algarrobas, incense and noble woods. The palate is very, very sweet and concentrated, unctuous, dense, with a mellow texture. This goes beyond a glass of wine, a drop of this is like having a piece of cake. I don't think it reaches the complexity and depth of the 1946, which remains the benchmark for these sweet old PXs, but it's really great! 9650 bottles were filled in June 2015.

Technique

Oenology

The grapes are harvested at the end of August. The best bunches are selected and transported in crates to a sandy area where they are laid out in the sun to dry for 10 days (45-50°C during the day and 25-35°C at night). The bunches are then crushed with very powerful presses, and the must is put into vats. The alcoholic fermentation takes place until about 9° of alcohol. The wine is then matured to about 17° and then aged for a long time in large American oak barrels.

Suggestions for accompaniment

To be drunk on its own, as a dessert wine or with a large Havana.
