Raimones Engrescada Orange
Grapes: Marina, Xarel.lo, Muscat
Raïmones is an exciting new natural wine project in Penedès that is essentially a supergroup of acclaimed local wine producers Mas Candi, La Salada and RR Sadurni, whose individual projects we have been fans of for some time. For Raïmones the trio work primarily with indigenous Catalunya varieties, including the super-rare Marina which they are on a mission to bring back from the brink of extinction.
The Engrescada Orange is a blend of Marina, Xarel.lo and Muscat fermented on skins in stainless steel for 2 months. Zesty and vibrant with peach and pear aromas and hints of jasmine and spice on the lightly grippy finish.
