Pinomar 2019

Winery Rodriguez de Vera Vineyard Collectors

Region Alicante, Spain

Grapes Merseguera 95%, Moscatel 5%
ProfileOn the nose, the wine has a ripe Meyer lemon aroma enhanced by fresh herbs and a bit of balsamic. On the palate it is a dry wine with moderate acidity, medium body, and is marked by the presence of elevated tannins that give the wine structure. In flavor it has a elevated intensity with citric nuances, ripe white fruit and an extended finish marked by a pleasant tannic sensation.
Grape GrowingThe challenge at Sopla levante is to bring the simplicity of an unknown variety or a spectacularly unique terroir to the maximum expression. That is why the philosophy in this producing micro-lots of each of our sites in a natural way, or at least with minimal intervention. They do not add sulfites and use indigenous yeasts from within the vineyard itself. They foot trod a small amount of grapes onsite that later transfers to the winery to start the fermentation process of that plot. The wines are 100% dry farmed and own rooted. Harvest took place in the second half of August.
WinemakingThe wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts from the vineyard itself. It spent 3 months in contact with skins, and a total of 8 months maturing in clay tinajas (basically, smaller amphorae).
More About the WinePinomar is a wine made with yeasts influenced by the warm Mediterranean on shore winds. The use of Merseguera adds to the intriguing aromas of riper citrus to the wine. It is not a common occurrence to see orange wines from this corner of Spain in the US, but the trend is definitely growing within Spain itself.
