La Badi is made from Garnacha Gris vines planted near Valladolid. The grapes were hand-harvested the last week of September, de-stemmed and crushed, wild yeast fermented with 3 days on skins, then raised in tank over winter without malolactic fermentation (due to the naturally cold climate), and bottled in April without fining, filtration or added SO2. This is a fresh and richly textured white Duero wine, showing orchard fruit and refreshing acidity. Pair it with grilled seafood, poultry and pork.
