Bodegas De Altolandon Dona Leo Manchuela DO
Grapes: Muscat a Petit Grains
A Spanish white wine from the high altitude ( 1100m ) vineyard in the Manchuela DOC area of the La Mancha region of Spain
Skin contact for 12 hours with a temperature controlled spontaneous alcoholic fermentation after which the wine is pressed. No malolactic ferrmentation. The wine is kept on its lees for 8 months in the stainless steel tanks and goes through battonage twice a week. Stabilisation is also natural when during the coldest months, temperatures can go to minus 15º C.
The wine is close to golden in colour, the floral nose leads into white flowers, roses and orange peel. The palate is nicely structured for a dry Muscat, with more herbs and a pleasant bitterness on the finish. Excellent acidity and freshness with a clean finish.
Poultry and white meat dishes, especially veal, also fish and shellfish with butter sauces.
