One more single-harvest, old sweet wine, the 1955 Don PX Convento Selección was bottled in September 2014 and it had been aged slowly in very old American oak barrels and getting thick and concentrated through evaporation. It's 320 grams of sugar are (partially) compensated by 6.5 grams of acidity. It has a nose and palate of chocolate-covered candied orange, spices, molasses. I'd say the dominant aromas in the nose are dark chocolate. It's very dense, developing notes of very concentrated licorice and balsamic, mint, camphor and evolving notes of petrol with time. Complex, rare and unique. 8,400 bottles.

Description

Convent and Ginés de Liaban are the names of the two toplines at Toro Albalá.
As high-quality as the best Boal Madeiras!
Ginés de Liaban was a former soldier who died in the vineyards whose body was found on the estate.

Vinification

More than 60 years of ageing in vats.
Just after harvesting, th egraopes are dried on mats until they are raisins.
Then these are pressed so as to obtain a very sweet nectar, with a sugar content so high that it cannot ferment completely.

Tasting analysis

Deep brown, nearly black colour.
Oily texture. A very complex mix of aromas; on the palate, a concentrated but elegant wine, thanks to a refined, almost impercitible acidity. Very long finish.
This wine will be the idea companion for desserts with chocolate, nuts, caramel and dried fruit.
It reminds us of the Gran Reserva 1982, but it is even more complex. WA 98/100.

Storage potential

Ageing potential: unlimited. Like a Vintage Madeira.
Once the bottle is opened, the wine will keep at least one year.

Serving

Serve cool (8°C) in a large glass so as to enjoy the aromatic complexity.
