A LARANJA MECÂNICA By António Maçanita branco 2019


Known for his irreverence, he admits that he is also a revivalist, winemaker António Maçanita is fascinated by diversity.

To prove this irreverence, which many call irreverence, there is The Clockwork Orange. It looks like a modernity, but it is not: after all, his method of winemaking replicates the ancient tanning.

After the first and gentle pressing, the grapes still have 10 to 15% juice. These grapes will macerate for 7 days and then press again and remove more juice, more concentrate. This juice was spontaneously fermented. The result is disconcerting, undisciplined, disruptive, disturbing ... in a very delicious way. It is not a film, it is a wine. It is the Clockwork Orange, because life sometimes applies an agonizing pressure that we just try to withstand. Here, they transferred the mechanical pressure to the skins, which is a very healthy way of dealing ...

Great white to start meals like a classic harmonization of Foie gras, or a terrine, a very interesting white in the transition to red whites, due to its intensity and concentration.
