Crushed & Cured

Bodegas Altolandon, Enblanco de Altolandon, DO Manchuela, Spain, 2021


A very pale orange pink colour, the nose is elegant with sweet aromas of stone fruits, mineral and anise, supported by apricot, mirabelle plum and citrus notes. Full and well rounded on the palate, with plenty of weight, yet still elegant, lively and light in body. Easy to drink.

The wine is produced as naturally as possible and fermented spontaneously on the skins in 1000 litre amphora to maximise the potential of the grapes. There are no added sulphites and cold stabilisation is done naturally during the coldest months when temperatures can drop to -15° C.

Owner & winemaker, Rosalia Molina, makes organic wines in one of Spain's highest altitude wineries. Her mission is to make wines that express the typicity of DO Manchuela: the vineyard, the altitude and the varieties planted. 

Rosalia's vineyards are certified organic, she uses only natural fertilisers, promoting biodiversity by welcoming chickens, sheep and pigs from local farms to roam the vineyards freely. Grapes are hand harvested and vinified as naturally as possible with native yeasts and little other intervention.
