Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Names of the old bottlings tend to vary (they are highly creative at Toro Albalá!) and the old Amontillado is now presented as 1952 Amontillado Convento Palma. It has the character of a very old wine, with traces of the biological aging under flor, certainly more pungent and sharper than the Palo Cortado I tasted from 1964. There is, as I have seen in other vintages, a sensation of sweetness on the finish (but no aromas of sweet wine), that kind of softens the sharpness. It could very well be the pure concentration from old age. They expect to eventually fill some 3,400 bottles with this wine.
Between 10ºC and 12ºC
Aged under the traditional Soleras system by means of an oxidizing ageing process.
