Syrah & Moscatel grapes were harvested by hand. Carbo nic maceration and fermentation with indigenous yeast in plastic tanks. Aged in a mixture of old barrels and tanks. No fining or filtration and just a small amount of added sulphur on bottling.
This Wine: A light and juicy wine made from red and white grapes. The Syrah provides plenty of cherry and crunchy red berry flavours whilst the Muscat brings a Peachy character and perfumed aromas. Drink chilled on a warm day in the sun.
Notes on the Winemaker: After arriving in on the island of Mallorca to learn from local winemaker Cati Ribot, Charlie Prymaka started his own project, Jugo Vins in 2020 with his partner Lauren Duttenhofer. The focus is on easy-drinking, fun wines that are made with local grape varieties from organic plots across the island including some of Cati's vines.
