Bodegas Toro Albala Eléctrico Fino 3 Fases NV

Sherry Jerez - Manzanilla, SpainBone dry and awash with hints of large flake sea salts, almond skins along a gently plump, sweet stone palate, this subtle, pale yellow fino has both generosity and freshness. Less overtly salty than its coastal Jerez counterparts, this is content with its nuttiness, citrus and meadow grass notes. This is a solera that began 65 years ago, though the wine is no more than ten years old (averaging five) meaning it's a fino with extended time under flor, adding to its complexity. As with all finos from Montilla, no fortification is needed for the flor to thrive. The shining packaging, and name Fino Electrico reflects the winery's past existence as the original power plant in Aguilar de la Frontera.Tasted: 06 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 36.95 LCBO Producer: Bodegas Toro AlbalaDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
