Escoda Sanahuja - Els Bassots
100% Chenin from Joan Ramon Escoda. Two week's skin maceration, and ageing in anfora, without sulfites. It's a brilliant, vivid, refreshing and complex wine.
The 2015 is a special treat - with 24g of residual sugar, it is the ideal aperitif or dessert pairing!
The 2013 can take a lot of aeration and will evolve for days, indeed for weeks! This is a fabulous wine, less wild and crazy than the 2011 and 2012 editions, perhaps due to the Anfora treatment, for it's softer and gentler. But still possesses a profound structure with racy mineral acidity, a fascinating texture, both silky and tannic, and intense and complex fruit with lemon, pear, apricot, honey, smoked hickory and bacon underpinning much more that evolves as the wine opens. Give it air!
