Manual harvest into small crates with the muse fermenting on skins in clay amphora with no added SO2, 6 months on skins. Deep bronze color. Lovely sweet peach and apricot on the nose with the same plus lemon and some grip on the palette. Quite dry with some tannin and leaving you wanting more.

No question that this is an orange wine, with 6 months on its skins and no sulphur added! Tastes like the sea with lovely salinity, stone fruit and spices.

We met Vinessens at Real Wine in London and immediately fell in love with the range of white and amber wines they were producing, majority coming from Monastrell. With a range from light whites to flor covered ambers, some have skin contact for over 2 years.

Their vines are mainly over 100 years old on a mix of soils, with the majority on sand. You can feel the ocean on a lot of their wines with salinity, a lot of minerality and some with the local herbs like rosemary and thyme. The land is around 23 hectares on a hillside with 550 to 700 meters of elevation.
