100% Moscatel de Alejandría
(Glasswort in English) is a bushy plant that grows well in salty, brackish waters. We have chosen this name as it reflects the saline characteristics of the grapes that are grown in the “La Mata” Natural Park at sea level and barely 50 metres from the shore.
VINIFICATION: Hand harvested in small crates and strict selection at the winery Soft maceration with gentle, skin contact for 5 days and spontaneous fermentation in concrete vats with local yeasts from the natural park. Half way through fermentation the wine is pressed and skins removed. Aged on the lees for five months in concrete vats under a cap of flor (velo).
TASTING NOTE: Light golden yellow in color. Notes of stone fruit, like peach and notes of orange peel and orange blossoms on the nose. With volume and complex on the palate with a pronounced saline character from the salty soils. A white wine with great texture, medium bodied with well-integrated acidity. The finish is dry and long making it perfect to combine with an array of fishes, rices dishes, pastas or a selection of cheeses.
