Reptiliano Moscatel de Alejandria, Terroir Sonoro 2019 Orange Wine
100% Moscatel (Muscat of Alexandria) from a two-hectare parcel of organic, dry farmed 50+ year old un-grafted bush vines on quartz gravel, red clay, and schist over granite. No pesticides or fertilizers used.
Harvested berry by berry and manually destemmed using a traditional Zaranda; basket pressed and fermented on the skins for seven days with native yeasts. Due to the low pH soils, malolactic does not occur. Aged in 12 months in used 3500L foudre. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
