100% Airén grown organically and hand harvested in central Spain. The wine goes through spontaneous yeast fermentation in stainless steel and finishes in the bottle (made using the Ancestral Method) several months after harvest. No fining, filtering, or SO2 used at all. The petnats tend to age in the bottle up to a year at times before release and are disgorged to order. Playful bubbles and a slightly herbaceous nose.
Julián is the godfather of Spanish orange wine. Actually, in his eyes it's just white wine. His family has been making it this way long before "everybody and their mother," as he puts it, started making orange wine. In fact, he has a problem with a lot of the orange wine being made in Spain as he feels most people are taking shortcuts. When you taste his wines, you'll understand what he means. We're talking a minimum of 3 months on the skins... His region is one of the largest wine producing regions in Spain and is maybe known for the wrong reasons. The same could be said of the Airén grape used mostly for bulk and distilling but in Julian's hands it's nothing but compelling and nuanced. That said, his wines can be polarizing as his winemaking is super extreme as is his impeccable organic farming practice. Agriculture is his life with grapes being only one of the many crops he grows. Black garlic, peppers, onions, potatoes, saffron....if La Mancha has it, he grows it.
