The inaugural release of this classic Spanish white variety from the Anderson & Marsh partnership (aka Eleana Anderson of Mayford and Jo Marsh of Billy Button Wines). Both Eleana and Jo have an affinity for the famous Spanish red variety Tempranillo, which they make under their individual brands. When the first true Albarino fruit became available in the North East they were both very keen to have a play, and so ‘Parell’ was born. A Tempranillo will join the Albarino in this range with the 2019 vintage. Parell is a Galician term for pair, referring to both the winemaking duo and the two Spanish varieties.
Released February 2020
Picked in the cool of the early morning, the juice was separated into 2 parcels at pressing. The first, free run juice was sulphured at pressing to retain the bright fruit flavours, cold settled using enzyme then cool-fermented in stainless steel with a selected yeast strain. Following this, the ‘midcut’ was filled directly to an old puncheon that was allowed to undergo ferment with wild yeast on full grape solids. At the completion of ferment the puncheon was topped, both parcels were sulphured to prevent malolactic fermentation and matured on lees without stirring for 6 months. The parcels were then blended together, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Bottled under screwcap.
