RuBor Viticultores - Orly Lumbreras "Chass!" Tinja 1.5LRegular price $76.00
RuBor Viticultores was founded in 2013 by Gredos friends Orly Lumbreras and Rubén Díaz in an effort to combine their passion, skill, and love of the mountain fruit that they were farming organically (and previously selling away to cooperatives) in an effort to make incredible wine off the beaten path. Chass! Is a very rare and special wine made from Chasselas grapes (ordinarily only found in Switzerland) from two small plots of 70+ year-old vines on decomposed granite soils in Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. With a whopping 160 days of skin contact, then raised in stainless steel and clay amphorae with occasional batonnage, this is as orange of a wine if we ever saw it! Hazy tangerine-hued in the glass, with some tannins, orange blossom, a touch of grapefruit pith bitterness, and underlying minerality. A fun accompaniment for things such as Thanksgiving, poultry/vegetarian food, or a fun party with friends.
