Tillingham 'Qvevri Orange' 2019
25% Bacchus, 25% Müller Thurgau. 25% Madeleine Angevine, 25% Ortega
All handpicked & wild fermented in qvevri without adjustment;
Each of the four varieties were crushed and destemmed (apart from the Madeleine Angevine, which remained as wholebunches), the amount of skins varied from 100% in the Ortega and Madeleine Angevine, down to 30% in the Müller Thurgau and Bacchus. The time on skins varied anywhere from a month to four months, before pumping out the wine and pressing the skins from the Qvevri. The wines then went into a mixture of old oak barrels and foudre for a further 4 months.
