The unmistakable hint of a slight oxidation and the 1-2 years of maturation under flor yeast are immediately recognisable.
This special wine reveals itself in an intense golden yellow that shines through the veil of delicate mother-of-pearl tones.
The Alquimia unfolds an unmistakable aroma of salted almonds and oranges, mixed with the hint of a sea breeze. Memories of dry biscuits, orange peel and shells emerge. This distinctive, fresh and invigorating bouquet emerges from the glass.
The dry, invigorating structure at first sip is unmistakable. A clear and unmistakable saltiness and spiciness dominate, which is in keeping with its animating nature. This wine accompanies wonderfully south-facing dishes with juicy vegetables and strong spices.
Try it as an aperitif together with salted nuts and olives. As a main course, a tender monkfish, marinated and served with pomegranate and red cabbage salad, toasted sesame seeds and a pinch of tomato jam could perfectly complement the Alquimia. Alternatively, dorade, prepared in a salt crust and accompanied by olive oil, aubergines and potatoes with rosemary, goes perfectly with this complex and invigorating wine.
