Esencia Rural Toledo Bianco 2018
Castilla-La Mancha, Spain
Vines at Esencia Rural are dry-farmed, bush-trained and ungrafted. This, in addition to minimal intervention farming and fermentation, gives the wines a rustic and earthlike quality. This skin contact white wine made entirely from indigenous Airén grapes has a medium body of tropical fruit and ripe citrus. The light maceration gives the wine a soft and herbaceous tannic structure of earl gray tea and summer savory. Pair with a grilled Manchego sandwich and cup of Salmorejo.
