Skin Contact 2018 - Peninsula Vinicultores (Spain)
Maceration in contact with the skins of albariño grapes. A fresh wine, with marked acidity and hints of dehydrated apricot.
A small galaxy of brands, Peninsula groups a series of wineries mostly scattered in various areas of Castile, south of Madrid, with points also in Rioja, Sierra de Gredos and Biscay, in the Basque Country. The group, which includes the two Masters of Wine Andreas Kubach and Sam Harrop, manages a very wide range of vineyards, gathering the different territorial typicalities and winemaking experiences under the hat of an extraordinary approach, based on the search for expressive authenticity in wines and production sustainability. In particular, the goal of sustainability is pursued at different levels, from the reduction of CO2 emissions and water waste to energy efficiency and the defense of biodiversity, to achieve the social impact on local communities.
