Engrescada Sparkling Orange - RAIMONES WINES

Isabelle's thoughts on Engrescada, Sparkling Orange:

This is the first vintage of an exciting new Catalan venture started up by three fun-loving friends from neighboring winemaking families whose vineyards are located in the Penedes, Spain’s de facto cava-making territory. This orange pet nat is an unusual blend of Catalunya’s ubiquitous Xarel-lo and the extremely rare, little-known, Marina grape, which the trio are committed to revive (there are currently only ten or so hectares cultivated worldwide). Quite muscat-like in its aromas, the delicious Engrescada is perfumed, aromatic, almost smoky on the nose with notes of peach and violet, and a bitter orange finish.
