Toro Albalá "Fino Electrico - 3 Fases" Fino Montilla Moriles

SKU #1263632 Jancis Robinson

 Really above the average of Montilla Moriles Fino. Delicate, refreshing, salty, marine with an elegant yeasty character. Vivid but with a nutty appeal with really marked ageing notes such as toast and biscuit. Great intensity and depth. Extremely fresh bottle - although I know Spaniards are at an advantage in terms of sherry freshness. (FC)  (3/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Electrico del Lagar Fino is aged, unfortified, under flor for an average of 10 years in the solera created 60 years ago before being bottled into half liter bottles. It is called Electrico, and it used to come in a light bulb-shaped bottle, but sadly not anymore, all of it a little bit of a joke because the original winery is housed in an old electricity plant, but also because of the liveliness of the wine in the mouth, and an expression used in Cordoba to ask for a wine referring to it as an electric shock. It doesn’t have as much electricity as vintage Madeira but it has a lively palate. Bright, pale yellow-colored, I cannot really tell the grape here, which is Pedro Ximenez, with a slightly blurry nose of yeasty, spicy with dried herbs and grass (esparto) and green olives. It has a wide, full but lively palate with dry, pungent saline flavors and a bitter finish. (LG)  (8/2013)

K&L Notes

Toro Albala's novel, light bulb shaped bottle, along with the brand name "Fino Electrico" is a tribute to the winery's past existence as the original power plant in Aguilar de la Frontera, just outside of Córdoba. This fino averages 5 years of age, and as with all finos from Montilla, no fortification is needed for the flor to thrive. Crisply fruited and saline, this does seem to have more textural heft, a different savor, and less saltiness compared to Fino from Jerez and El Puerto. This is one of the most locally requested finos in the nearby city of Córdoba and an authentic expression of Montilla fino. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
