Description

Organic and Biodynamic winery Altolandon sits in the centre of its 1100m high altitude vineyards of the Manchuela DOC of Spain's La Mancha wine region. This Muscat a Petit Grains uses hand harvested grapes that are allowed skin contact for 12 hours during spontaneous fermentation. The wine is then pressed and kept on lees for 8 months in stainless steel with battonage twice a week. 

This creates a golden wine with a floral nose leading into white flowers, roses and orange peel. The palate is nicely structured, with more herbs, excellent acidity and freshness, and a pleasant bitterness on the clean finish. Try with poultry and white meat dishes, fish and shellfish with butter sauces, or pastries with dried fruit and nuts,

Bodegas Altolandon is located inland north west of Valencia. The winery sits in the centre of 120 hectares of vineyards, at 1,100 m above sea level. Certified organic methods are used in vineyards; only natural fertilisers, green pruning and hand-harvesting. Vinification is as natural as possible with only the first press used, spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts and little intervention. In-barrel malolactic fermentation, and French oak or clay amphora used for ageing.

Biodynamic, Organic and suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
