Bodegas Toro Albala, Fino del Lagar “Electrico”, NV (500mL)

$18.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

Montilla-Moriles is not a part of the Jerez/Sherry DO, but the wines are essentially kissing cousins. The soils in both DOs are stark white, chalky albariza, and both region's employ the Pedro Ximenez grape — although in Jerez it makes up just a tiny bit of production, and in M-M it's the star of the show. In the case of Toro Albalá's Eléctrico, it's nutty, dry and aromatic, with notes of salt and lemon, and its finish is long and clean. Try it with a cheese plate or your next Indian takeaway meal.

"They do a bottling in March every year, and I tasted the NV Fino Eléctrico del Lagar, bottled with an average age of ten years. Every March they take the wine they are going to sell in the next 12 months and transfer it to stainless steel vats, where it's kept to be bottled unfined and unfiltered; they bottle it almost when they receive the orders, to offer a wine as fresh as possible. This Fino del Lagar is bottled with ten years of flor. Bright-colored and with some greenish tints, the nose is a mixture of yeasts, dry herbs and wet chalk. The palate is medium-bodied, with a very tasty finish, a little dusty, ending salty. These PX Finos are always fatter than those produced with Palomino, with character and some rusticity. 40,000 bottles. The price given is for 500-milliliters."
