Vegas Altas Orange
Eva De Los Santos Blanco is an uncommonly cultivated native white grape of southern Spain, planted in 1921, grown certified organically over clay soils in the Ribera del Guadiana region of Extremadura. Hand harvested, fermented using indigenous yeasts in concrete deposits for over 35 days preserving the natural carbonation of the wines keeping them fresh and alive. Aged on the fine lees for around 5 months after harvest in stainless steel. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with low to no S02 at bottling. Annual production: 14,500 bottles. Lightly floral it is somewhat akin to a Mediterranean or Rhône style white wine crossed with a Sauvignon Blanc. Dry and tannic, with notes of marmalade and earl grey tea. Beautiful amber color.
Nose: Fruit & Floral! This wine has aromas of marmalade, citrus peel, honey and lavender.
Palate: White tea, orange peel, maramalde. It's light on the palate, very easy to drink.
