Micaela Oloroso is a classic fragrant from Marco del Jerez, in this case produced by Bodegas Barón in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. A relatively young fragrant, with those characteristic notes of nuts, walnut, but at the same time it is soft in the mouth, since its high glycerin content gives it a more silky mouthfeel, precisely because of its youth, even though it is a wine eminently dry.
Coming from the complete fermentation of palomino grapes, ‘olorosos’ are “vocational” wines; the special structure showing the outset advise tasters classification bound for oxidative aging. The initial heading to 17% vol. Alcohol prevents the development of ‘velo de flor’, so the wine ages exposed at all times to the slow action of oxygen by the traditional ‘criaderas’ and solera system. The slow water loss through the walls of the barrels promotes a continuous process of concentration, which makes the wine winning in structure, softness and complexity.
Tasting Notes: It is fragrant, powerful, pungent scent of fine wood, woodwork, lacquer, varnish, stale touch, orange peel, bitter notes, nuts, almond and hazelnut. The entrance is dry and powerful, delicious salty point without hurting sharp, nice appearance, fine, lively and juicy acidity is bound.
Pairing: Cured cheese (Manchego, Idiazabal and Parmesan) stews and game meat, cheeks, Jerez baked piglet, Tataky Red tuna, Bouef Bour Guignon, Coqau Vin and deer stew..
The Micaela brand has been in the Barón de Sanlúcar de Barrameda wineries for decades, a winery with more than 400 years of history. With the new times, they have gone from a primitive label to one of the most beautiful and colorful designs that stand out on the shelves of wine shops. Floral motifs fill the space, with contrasts of green, yellow, red and pink tones. The capsule continues along the same lines, although with the floral illustration in black and white. The amontillado, the cream and the stick cut from the same warehouse, use the same design with some changes.
