This is a choice wine, dry and full-bodied. As its name suggests it is very aromatic, with soothing glitters and scents of spices, noble woods and tobacco. It is classified as V.O.R.S. by the Regulatory Board, with 39 years of age.
It is most appropriate as an aperitif, served at room temperature. It matches to perfection with nuts, 'serrano' ham, beef and game.
"This imposing Oloroso has the pure mineral expression of the best Bodegas Tradicion wines, a compact block of briny flavor that fuses with the lively, almost spritzy acidity. It explodes with aromas of chestnuts, seaweed, chocolate and tea leaf, occupying every corner of the palate with touches of sea and limestone. As the wine opens with air, the texture grows in severity-almost to the point of feeling tannic. A challenging but gracefully refreshing wine that will only gain in complexity and depth over the years."
