Podere Pradarolo 2016 VEJ 270 Bianco (750ml)

Vej 270 Bianco Antico Podere Pradarolo, Natural, Orange Wine: complex, aromatic, herbaceous. This is a great value skin contact wine with plenty going on. It's textured, structured, complex but with plenty of freshness - hints of candied peel, and other classic Malvasia characteristics. Aged for 16 months in huge oak barrels (their words!) after a 90 day maceration. Fermentation of the organic grapes is spontaneous, no sulphur is added and the wine is bottled without filtration. If you like your orange wines this is well worth a punt with pork dishes, meaty fish or even hearty veg dishes. Claudia, part of the husband and wife team who run the estate, said about this wine: "VEJ is my wine, this ancient rose scented white wine, typical of Pradarolo and is really a feminine wine. I adore it. The natural wines thus have become my damnation, I can’t drink anything else, in fact I have developed an intolerance to sulphur that causes me heartburn and headaches. Be careful because real wine is addictive!"
