Doris Chasselas Dorè 2018
The fruit sourced for this wine comes from two different bush vineyards (en vaso) in Cebreros (Sierra de Gredos) averaging 40 years. Old vines have very long roots and so can explore the soil and extract many different nutrients and substances (more than young vines) and so make a richer and more complex wine.
The variety has been part of the local viticultural scenario in the last 200 hundred years and it’s a clone of the Chasselas which is an old grape variety born in the Jura and Alps mountain ranges of Switzerland. Fresh, tropical and savory, it is light on its feet while having a surprising amount of structure and body for a wine with just 10,5% alcohol. Fermented and macerated for 3 days. Like all of Fabio’s wines, the Doris is unfined, unfiltered and with no added sulfites. The ageing process continues in steel vats. 2.000 bottles produced.
