Vins d'En Tom, Tinassa 2020
From 40 year-old vines planted over clay and limestone, given a two-week maceration on the skins in clay pots. The wine is then pressed off the skins and fed back into the tinaja to be raised for 12 months before bottling. Made in a light-extraction style that keeps things breezy and fresh, without getting too tannic, the wine has bags of character and is intended to for carefree sipping, without the need to pair with food as some orange wines do.
Aromas of clementine citrus, herbs and salt. The tinaja give a lovely fine-grained texture, the body is light with bracing minerality, a little grip and great length.
Grapes: Airen & Macabeo
