100% Jaen Blanca from Sierra de Gredos, Castilla-León, Spain. Certified Organic, Unfined, Unfiltered. Skin-contact.
VINIFICATION: Bush trained vines are used in the making of this wine. Vineyards are situated 850m above sea level. Soils are composed of clay, sand and granitic formations. No chemical spraying, pesticides or herbicides are used in the vineyard, and everything is plowed by horse. Hand-harvested bunches are carefully selected, de-stemmed and crushed for each vineyard, after which they are separately fermented in stainless steel vats, using only indigenous yeast. The wine spends 43 days macerating on its skins, and it is further kept in contact with its fine lees for 5 months in stainless-steel tanks and in one French oak barrel. Unfined, unfiltered, no cellar manipulation. Natural, w/ the minimum addition of S02 (sulfites).
TASTING NOTES: This wine has aromas of hay, yellow fruits and flowers. On the palate, there are distinctive peach and apricot flavors, with an intense streak of stone minerality & salinity powering through it.
FOOD PAIRING: Absolutely delicious with Salads, White Pasta, Seafood, delicate Fish, grilled Chicken, and fresh Cheeses
