Muscat de Alexandria from Valencia, Spain; 3 weeks on skins, 6 months sur lie, medium bodied and dry, with honeysuckle and orange blossom, dusty with hints of bruised cantaloupe and herbal tea, with mild tea tannins and medium acid. A great intro to orange wine. Org, Bio, Vegan, no SO2.

Looking to make a more traditional wine than his neighbors, Alberto farms this vineyard in "secaro", without irrigation, over a nice mountain in the Valencia region of Southern Spain. The soils here are red clay and limestone, and the vines, which are 35+ years old, are treated with compost and plant extracts to ward off diseases, and are finally hand-harvested. There is a first phase of vatting and treading of the whole grape in stone presses (between 10 and 15 days), then 100% destemming and brief work with skins (between 2 and 3 days), indigenous yeasts, manual work of the hat during maceration-fermentation, and 3 weeks skin contact. The wine is then aged 6 months on its lees, and bottled unfined, unfiltered, barely sulfured.
