Description

The Diapiro range from Bodegas Pinoso focuses on native grapes and true, rustic wines with intense colour and huge aromatic potential. Bringing back the peculiar grape variety Merseguera, native to Alicante, grapes are hand harvested from bush vines in limestone soils located at 650m altitude. The grape juice is macerated on skins at low temperatures, before part fermentation in stainless steel on thin lees, and part in new French oak barrels.

Yellow with golden tones in appearance, the nose shows fresh notes of white flowers, grapefruit, fennel, mint and peach. The palate is fresh and Mediterranean in character, with notes of apricot, bitter almond, grapefruit and mint on the finish. Try with white roasted meat, sushi, risotto, aged cheese or cold meats.

Bodegas Pinoso was established in 1932 and are pioneers of ecological wine production, using sustainable production techniques since 1997. They are dedicated to improving soil fertility and increasing the biodiversity of local ecosystems. They bypass pesticides in favour of natural methods and substituting traditional fining agents such as gelatine with bentonite and vegetable proteins.

Organic and suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
