Mirabrás

€16.50

Mirabrás is a new white wine from the Land of Cádiz made by Bodegas Barbadillo but with clear symptoms that are reminiscent of a manzanilla without being one.

 

It is made with fine palomino grapes from old vines, planted on albariza in the Gibalbín area, Viña Cerro de Leyes, and fermented in Jerez casks as was done in the past, but it is not topped with alcohol, as would be done with a manzanilla. Also highlights in Mirabrás that character of veil of flower, of biological aging, since the wine is aged for 14 months in contact with its lees and developing a fine veil of flower. It is therefore a manzanilla wine, different, atypical but highly recommended.

In 2014, Montserrat Molina saw fit that the musts from the oldest vineyards in Santa Lucía fermented in old sherry casks. Everything was arranged to recover an old-fashioned elaboration: sunny, good oak, patience, control and chance in equal parts.

The wine rested on fine lees for a few months, then it went on to be stored in touches and finally in stainless steel ... until today. The result is overwhelming. If you are looking for a caress, do it elsewhere. Mirabrás is a song by Mairena suspended in the air of an old cellar room.

Vineyards of the Palomino variety planted in 1972 on albariza soils in Viña Cerro de Leyes, in Pago de Santa Lucía. Harvested by hand, the grape is subjected to solarization until it reaches a potential alcoholic level of about 14% vol. The must is fermented in old chamomile casks and once it is finished, it passes into oak casks and stainless steel tanks for 14 months of aging in contact with its lees and under a fine veil of flower. It is bottled unfiltered, in the branch. Production limited to 5000 bottles.
