Mirabrás 2014, Pure essence of Andalucia.

Vino de la Tierra de Cádiz 100% Palomino Fino.White with aging (Fermentation in boots and 18 months of aging under flower veil)

Unknown-12

Mirabrás leaves from one of these ancient fermentations. In 2014, Montserrat Molina was pleased that the musts from the oldest vineyards in Santa Lucía were fermented in old sherry boots. Everything was arranged to recover an old-fashioned elaboration: asoleo, good oak, patience, control and chance in equal parts. The wine rested on thin lees for a few months, then passed to keep to tocadedos and finally in stainless … until today. Part of that elaboration is now in each bottle. The result is overwhelming. If you are looking for a caress, do it somewhere else. Mirabrás is a song by Antonio Mairena suspended in the air of an old wine cellar. Pure essence of Andalucia.

Pale golden color, nose full of aromas of toasted corn and honey, herbaceous, white fruit (apple roasting), quince, nuts, spicy (sweet), smoked, complex. In the mouth it unfolds dry with a good acidity, untosa sensation in the palate revealing flavors to yeast, bread and old wood.
Rescue of an almost lost form of vinification: in old boot of Jerez. The grape comes from old vines, briefly sunny in the vineyard itself prior to fermentation. The must ferments in old American oak barrels that have been raising camomile. After fermentation, the wine is stored and aged in stainless steel and cement tanks for a period of 18 months. In this time, we allow that on the surface of the wine appear yeast of flower until the moment of the bottling. The wine is bottled after a slight seepage.

Perfect to enjoy with bluefin tuna and Asian food, mainly Japanese.
