A genuine rarity, this is our very first solo Ortega bottling, harvested on our second pick of our Ortega vines in Woodchester. Bright, bold aromas of candied orange peel, roasted peaaches and hints of ripe apricot. Subtle notes of vanilla pod and cinnamon, from the fermentation and ageing in barrel. Surprisingly rich, yet bone dry on the palate with notes of spice and grilled orchard fruits.

A genuine rarity, this is our very first solo Ortega bottling. 2021 was an excellent vintage for this little known grape and on the second pass through our Upper Atcombe vineyard the quality of the grapes harvested was so exceptional that we felt they deserved to star in their own, very limited release wine. Just 1,200 bottles were made... so it's very special indeed! The bold, bright aromas immediately grab your attention, all candied orange peel, roasted peaches and hints of ripe apricot. There are subtle notes of vanilla pod and cinnamon in the background, a reflection of the fermentation and maturation in older oak barrels but beautifully integrated, gorgeously smoky, spiced fruit nuances just keep unfurling. On the palate it is surprisingly rich, yet bone dry and beautifully balanced with notes of spice and grilled orchard fruits leading to a delightful minerality. There is an almost imperceptible backbone of acidity promising many years of exciting evolution. The finish is deliciously supple and long, with a deliciously moreish ripe citrus tang. This is a wine to enjoy now and in years to come.
