This sweet wine is made by Toro Albala, a winery founded in 1922 in the heart of the Cordoba countryside. Toro Albala winery is situated in Montilla-Moriles in the hills south of Cordoba. Like neighbouring soils, the jerez soil is chalky with a high humidity which is beneficial because of the harsh summers where temperatures reach 45 degrees. The PX vines thrive under these conditions. Around 30% of their grapes come from their own vineyards and 70% from partner growers in the Morilles Altos district. This wine is made using naturally sun dried Pedro Ximemez grapes which have been picked during full maturity. After they have turned into raisins the wine is made and bottled unfiltered.
