We are thrilled to announce the launch of Mirabrás 2018, Vino de la Tierra de Cádiz from Bodegas Barbadillo.
Barbadillo is the most prominent wine producer in Sanlúcar de Barramadera in Andalucía- Spain and its roots dig deep back to 1821 when the Bodega was founded. Barbadillo is now in the hands of the seventh-generation descendants of the founder, making it one of the oldest privately held bodegas in Spain.
Despite its long history and tradition, deeply rooted in the Sherry region and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Barbadillo is at the forefront of development, utilizing its unique resources and long experience to conjugate the historical values of Jerez and Sanlúcar with the positive changes that the region is embracing.
Mirabrás is one of the smallest and unique releases from Barbadillo, fruit of their sensible development in the aim to capture the unique and incomparable terroir of Jerez and most specially Sanlúcar de Barrameda, its salt, its sea, its light and its albariza soils.
Mirabrás is a white wine, an exceptional expression of the marriage of the singular elements of this corner of South Spain: Old vines from a single vineyard dedicated to the Palomino variety, chalky albariza soils, old soleo technique and presence of Flor during its 14months of ageing on old Manzanilla butts. Altogether, this is an incommensurable and unique white wine of fantastic complexity. Full body, textural yet fresh and sapid. A wine that displays a multilayered aromatic profile; suggesting notes of apples, lemon, biscuits, toast, and iodine. The palate is ample, round, fresh and focused with plenty of succulent fruit, herbal character and a lingering saline quality that will match with a great array of food.
Try this wine with your Asian inspired dishes, mushroom risotto or aged cheeses to maximum enjoyment!
