Vinessens

Flor de la Mata 2016
Vinessens

+

A delicious 10.5% blend of Moscatel and Merseguera! Crazy winemaking style, left on its skins in amphora for a month, then spent 2 years with only the wine flor as a cover, giving a sherry-like quality! Expect lots of sediment.

Pairing Suggestions:  Squid, Lighter Fishes, Indian Food

Alicante, Spain

Type: Orange | Vintage: 2016 | Sulfites: No Added | Alcohol: 10.5% | Varietal: Muscat, Merseguera | Production: Organic, Vegan | Style: Complex


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 Rosémary and thyme. The land is around 23 hectares on a hillside with 550 to 700 meters of elevation.
