Details for De Muller Aureo Dulce Añejo
A delicious, semi-sweet wine, with a myriad of aromas, unctuous and very pleasant on the palate, ideal both to start off a meal, accompanied by fresh cheese or foie gras, and also to end it, with its characteristic mellow, concentrated taste, as a perfect companion for dried fruits and nuts or Christmas sweetmeats.
Wines of this type are produced from the Garnacha Blanca and Tinta varieties, typical of the Tarragona area, and matured using the solera system. They were not only praised by the Roman emperors, who appreciated their silky and velvety palate, but they are also part of the history of the De Muller winery, which is especially well-known, and internationally too, for the production of rancio (darkish, oxidised, fortified) and sweet wines.
An impressive wine as regards its colour and sensational both on the nose and on the palate, with a rancio touch which greatly enhances it, a fine attribute which one only comes across in small, artisan wineries like De Muller.
NOTE: Since this is a fortified wine, sediment may appear over time. It is advisable to keep the bottle upright and not to shake it.
In appearance, the wine is an amber colour with mahogany tones. It is sophisticated and complex on the nose, with notes of candied fruit, honey, dried fruits and nuts, high roast and the typical ‘rancio’ whiff. It is powerful, rich, full and unctuous on the palate, also fruity and agreeably sweet, with flavours of prunes, raisins, dried figs and honey. The finish is warm and pleasant, and the aftertaste has high roast notes.
Matured in old oak casks using the solera system.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 10ºC and 12ºC
