Oloroso Soluqua VORS 19.5%, Bodegas Baron

Deep amber with golden highlights, legs.
Light and fresh, with slight Sanlucar notes of seaside among the aromas of walnut in syrup, toast, and almonds. There are hints of oak too and the slightest savoury note, which lend weight to the wine's age, reserved at first, light and easy, but it grows more complex in the glass without losing freshness.
Full to intense, lots of walnuts, some wood, quite tangy and gently grippy, but with enough glycerol to balance, very refined and reasonably complex with hints of toasted nuts: almond and especially savoury walnut notes, traces of fig , damp barrels and a trace of raisin.
A very good wine with classic Sanlucar character. This top quality range from Baron includes a VORS PX, Manzanilla Pasada (12 years old), a Fino of 9-10 years, a VORS Amontillado, a VOS Medium, a VOS Cream and an 8 year old Moscatel.
