2021 Conejos Malditos Blanco Con Madre
60% Malvar & 40% Airén
Handpicked grapes of the local varieties Malvar and Airén, organically grown. Soils are limestone at 750 meters in this continental climate.
Spontaneous, natural whole cluster fermentation with indigenous yeast in amphorae. Kept on the lees and stems for six months and then bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfer added.
TASTING NOTES |
The biggest threat to these old vines are not the extreme conditions they face each year - whipping winds, blistering heat, bitter cold, lack of rain - it is rabbits. Cute as they may be, the destruction they cause is massive - taking out entire hectares of vineyards each year.
Herbal and earthy, this wine has everything you want in a natural, skin contact white and none of the things you don’t (funky not flawed). Exotic and spicy with rich honey notes that provide a broad, soft palate. Integrated acidity and pristine winemaking keeps the wine so fresh and so clean clean.
