The museum releases of vintage-dated Pedro Ximénez wines represent the most profound and concentrated expressions of PX from the Toro Albalá stable. Produced by the first two generations of Toro Albalá, the Convento Selección bottlings represent the finest, oldest and rarest selections from their inventory. In contrast, the Selección wines were vinified by the second generation and Antonio Sánchez Romero—third generation and current head of the estate. The Ginés Liébana label is reserved for older lots purchased and raised by Toro Albalá. Its ‘current’ release (1937) has been maturing in their Aguilar de la Frontera cellars since 1960.

For those lacking experience with PX of this age, these wines are incredibly intense and infinitely complex. These are very different from the younger blended examples, not only in their complexity but also in their heightened savoury nature. Luckily, only small serves are required of these elixirs, and they will keep for months—even years—once opened, provided they are stored carefully (at cellar temperature for added longevity). They are a rare treat on a degustation menu or at the end of a meal. The Amontillado and Palo Cortado are intense aperitifs, while the PX wines are pretty much the ultimate pairing for chocolate, coffee or any dish loaded with these ingredients.
