Estival, Vinedo De Los Vientos, 75cl
All Vinedo De Los Vientos wines come from the rich heritage & traditions of their Family, and the inspiration of the winemaker, thier goal is quite simple; take the best from thier soil & history, and translate it into grapes and wines that a little bit out of the box, the Estival does just that;
The blend in its own right is unique but what makes the wine is the way grapes were harvested. The Chardonnay is picked very early, coming in at around 11% alcohol to take advantage of its piercing acidity, almost like a base wine for a sparkler, the Gewürztraminer picked at full ripeness, while the Moscato is allowed to ripen to an almost raisin stage. The grapes are all co-fermented together, no wood is used.
The end result is wine with a lovely floral lift of lychee and white orchard fruits aromatically with an engaging textural feel countered with an underlying vein of acidity that gives length and drive. This is something that you want to come back for a second glass. It’s delicious and vibrant with a beautiful, lightly creamy texture leading to a clean, lingering finish, everything in balance.
