Product Description

Simply called Muradella, this 100 per cent Doña Blanca is the pinnacle of José's expression of white Monterrei. The fruit comes from a single mountain vineyard planted in the Tamaguelos district. Vines are at 3500-7500 vines per hectare and yields are extraordinary low. Separated into two parcels, half the batch is left whole bunch and half destemmed and each subject to 48 hours of pre-ferment skin contact in stainless steel tanks. Once the ambient fermentation is underway the wines are transferred into three-year-old, 500-litre barrels to finish the fermentation. After eight months in the barrel the wine is naturally decanted into stainless steel tanks where it stays for four months before it is bottled without filtration.

Like many of the Muradella wines, this isn't easy to nail down and may puzzle the type of drinker who likes to vivisect how wine is constructed. I've drunk a few bottles of this wine and I'm still nowhere near getting my head around it. Just as well it is such a joy to drink. Talk about the interplay of flavour and texture! In general, though, I find a wine of gripping texture balanced by intense citrus, a searing mineral counterweight and an exquisitely tapered finish. This is a profound, one-of-a-kind force of nature and not for the faint of heart.
