Veronica Ortega - Kinki 2019

Veronica Ortega - Kinki 2019


Region: Bierzo

Grapes: Mencia (field blended with Alicante Bouschet, Palomino, Godello & Valenciana)

A light, elegant wine with notes of watermelon, red fruit and strawberries with spice notes and a touch of salinity. Soft fruited with a crisp backbone of fine acidity. Lovely and interesting at the same time.

Notes for nerds

A field blend from a very old vineyard in the village of Cobrana. The vineyard sits at 750m and is rich in slate. The grapes are all whole cluster fermented together in large open top oak vats. Elevage lasts for 8 months and is in a mix of old barrel and large clay amphora. Sounds pretty interesting but plot twist; the amphora wine saw elevage under flor. Very interesting.
