Ortega Amphora 2018

Regular price £19.50

Fermented and aged in a terracotta Amphora has given greater power and depth with honeyed notes to the floral aromas of the Ortega grapes.



Description

Fermented and aged on skins in terracotta with only light filtration. Candied peel and grapefruit on the nose with a long and honeyed dry zesty finish. Limited to 600 bottles.

Our traditional bespoke terracotta Amphora is the first of its kind in the UK. Terracotta amphorae were the only winemaking vessel for thousands of years.

They are now being used by a few daring and innovative winemakers, including a handful of the most prestigious Bordeaux and Champagne estates, to understand how our forefathers connected with their land to yield more interesting wines.

An excellent accompaniment to seafood, white meats, tapas or enjoyed on its own.
