In the category of unfortified, "sherry-style" wines, this takes the cake for being the most affordable certified organic style on the market today! This wine is made from a rare local grape called Eva de los Santos, in certified organic vineyards in Extremadura.

Winemaking Notes: After the grapes are harvested by hand, fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast in tank for 31 days. The wine is then aged "bajo velo" (under flor) in older oak casks for 277 days followed by cement tanks for 301 days. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with low to no SO2. Tastes a little like a softer nod towards a Manzanilla. Very delicious!
