A truly intriguing wine and not just beacuse of it's label. Albarino, grown in the south of Wales with 35 days skin contact before spending 10 months ageing on fine lees in old Austrian oak barrels. Fermented with wild yeats, bottled without fining, filtration and a very small amount of sulphur. Deep and savoury with pithy tangerine, bruised apple and pear fruitwith hints of hay and chamomile.
First planted back in 2006 and 07 they now have 4 hectares of mature vines with a further of 8 hectares of young Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted. Richard and Joy Morris have built a state of the art winery and have a holistic approach to all their acivities in the vineyards and the winery and practise biodynamics. The land was previously used as a grazing pasture and the sandstone soils are healthy and well nourished.
Try this with autumn vegetables, butternut squash, parsnips and pumpkin roasted with a little spice would be great.
