2020 Vegas Altas "Bajo Velo"

Availability: In stock (4)

Vegas Altas is the primary focus of winemakers Juan Sojo and Angel Luis Gonzalez of Bodegas Altos de Montanchez, the only organic producer in Extremadura. While we've become very attached lately to their tempranillo, their offerings are quite diverse, ranging from sparkling to fortified fino, with every color of still table wine in between. This wine is made entirely from a rare local grape called eva de los santos, harvested from a vineyard of 80+ year old vines. Harvested by hand, fermentation happens with indigenous yeast in tank for 31 days. The wine is then aged "Bajo Velo" (under flor) in older oak casks for 277 days followed by cement tanks for 301 days. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with low to no SO2. This soft, manzanilla-style white would be great with a garlicky bean stew, jamon (of course), or tortilla española.
