'Burbuja' Palomino Ancestral


This is hand-picked organic Palomino grown in Pago Balbaina Alta, then given the Ancestral bubbling treatment. Not being a style supported by the DO currently, as with the other Forlong wines, it's labelled Vino de Tierra de Cadiz. Fermentation is the same for vinosity and for adding bubbles: the wine is bottled before the alcoholic fermentation has converted all of the sugar. This starts in the tank and finishes in bottle. 8 months' later is a hand disgorgement and the bottles are refilled with the same wine. 12% abv

Fresh, pure white peach, with lemon sour, wild hay, a hit of chalk, peach skin, white flours and saline. Flowing bead, nice earthy-savoury richness, gentle finish. It's really great!
