Ginja Ninja Orange Wine
A delicious orange wine made from organic Verdejo grapes which, unlike white wines, are macerated and fermented with their skins to add subtle tannins, citrus flavours, and a characteristic ginger colour.
The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards at an altitude of 700m grown under organic growing criteria in a balanced, caring and sustainable way. The vineyard’s soils – loam and medium-deep sandy limestone – play a major role which favour rapid assimilation of reincorporated organic matter. This enables full terroir expression.
The grapes from 25 year old vines are hand-harvested. After a gentle pressing, the juice is fermented with their skins. Fermentation at controlled temperature (16º-18ºC), with daily pumping over for the juice to be in contact with skins and to get this characteristic fresh, citric aroma. After fermentation, vatting takes place for 2 months with one gentle pump up per day. This allows us to extract some tannins, something unique in this kind of elaborations. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation follows.
Clean, bright, with amber yellow colour and salmon shades. Fresh fruit aromas and citric notes, pink grapefruit. On the palate the wine is light and smooth something that at the same time contrasts with the presence of the tannins and the powerful but balanced crispness. Rich, full-bodied, fresh and with a citric and vegetal character obtained from the contact with the skins. Long aftertaste.
Excellent with pasta, rice, fish and white meats. Best served at a temperature of 8-10ºC.
