Vegas Altas Ancestral, 2019, 750ml
Brisk bubbles from organic grapes grown in the southwestern Spain. The only organic winery (now converting to biodynamic) in the whole Extremadura region, Altos de Montanchez makes some exceptionally valued wines. This rosé is a blend of both red and white grapes, made with a single fermentation finishing in the bottle for the bubbles. The wine is disgorged (the yeasty sediment collected in the neck, shilled and removed as a plug), a common producer for both champagne and pet-nat style sparklers. Great tart raspberry aromas and stony minerality. Wild yeast fermentation, no fining, clarity achieved via disgorgement but no filtering.
