Another stunning masterpiece from Spanish natural wine master Ismael Gonzalo, this is a white of compelling character and personality, from old 100% Verdejo grapes planted in 1868 in Segovia’s Nieva village, at more than 900m elevation on poor soils of siliceous sand and gravel. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in a cave in Spanish amphorae called “tinajas” and extends for several months, with elevage of at least 2 years both in tinajas and steel, after which it’s bottled with no fining, filtration or added SO2. Bright, focused and splendidly complex: red peaches, pink salt and lavender compote, lemon oil, white musk and lime zest.
