Regular price £23.50 Sale

Fermented and aged on skins in terracotta with only light filtration. Candied peel and grapefruit on the nose with a long and honeyed dry zesty finish.

It has made Ortega more robust with greater staying power and added new dimensions not found by fermenting in stainless steel tanks or barrels.

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.

Terracotta amphorae were the only winemaking vessel for many hundreds, if not thousands of years. They are now being used by a few daring and innovative winemakers, including a handful of the most prestigious Bordeaux and Champagne Estates, to understand how our forefathers connected with their land to yield more interesting wines. 

An excellent accompaniment to seafood, white meats, tapas or enjoyed on its own.
