Westwell - Ortega Amphora ‘Orange Wax’Westwell
Fermented in a traditional bespoke terracotta Amphora, believed to be the first of its kind in the UK, gives very different fermentation characteristics and hence flavours, to this white wine. Fermented and aged on its lees in terracotta and only lightly filtered has given candied peel and grapefruit on the nose with a long and honeyed dry zesty finish. It has made this Ortega more robust with greater staying power and added new dimensions not found by fermenting in stainless steel tanks or barrels.
