Appellation: Ribera Del Duero
Color/Style: White, Medium Full Bodied
Grapes: Malvasia, Albillo
This slightly orange wine is made from 100+ year old vines of Albillo & Malvasia, hand-harvested, destemmed, and pressed in an old-fashioned basket press. The wine is fermented with wild yeasts in steel vat with about 25 days skin contact, and then raised in the same vat on fine lees, bottled in early spring without fining, filtration or added SO2.
Hazy, golden aspect. Bright and briny aromatics, white peach and pear, menthol, green walnut. The Malvasia brings texture and a floral garland to the profile. Astonishingly delicious white from this old guard "black sheep" of the Ribera del Duero.
