Ginja Ninja, Citizen Wine
Citizen Wine is a new venture set up by a close-knit group of industry experts (including several Masters of Wine) to "breathe some much needed life into an all-too-often rigid and stuffy wine sector".
With over 100 years of combined experience at the top of the profession Citizen Wine aims to place the customer, aka the citizen, at the very forefront of every winemaking decision. They believe wine should be made with just one purpose in mind; to be enjoyed not revered.
Producer Citizen Wine
Viticulture & Winemaking Organic viticulture. 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. Unfiltered.
Region Vino de la Tierra De Castilla, Spain
Tasting Notes Fantastic value - fresh and crisp citrus peel, a savoury kick of spice, soft tannins and a very satisfying finish.
