Winemaking Notes
Winemaker: David Tofterup

The grapes were harvested at different stages starting end of August through mid-September 2021 at the early hours of the morning when the temperatures are low and the grapes themselves are chilled. Harvesting in these conditions allow for the grapes to preserve their natural aromatic characteristics offer and very expressive aromatic wine once bottled. Each grape variety was vinified separately. The musts (only free run) were settled and racked before the fermentation using selected yeasts. The temperature is controlled, maintaining it at 13-16ºc throughout the fermentation in stainless steel tanks. A youthful and refreshing wine ready to enjoy once bottled.


Vineyards:
We are very selective about the quality of grapes that we work with at Bodegas Trenza. We have found interesting pockets of thriving vineyards expanding across 3 small villages within Spanish Mesetathat make up La Orphica Selección Aurora. The the vineyards are all located near the Jucar River, and the majority have the characteristic river stone soils resulting in a nice minerality that adds a bit more depth to the flavour profile.

“As a winemaker I love challenging preconceived ideas and what I set out to do with Aurora is to show you that quality or prestige is not only achieved with a single varietal wine. The experience you will have with Aurora´s white wine blend is indeed a high quality, Spanish experience. One that combines and enhance the quality and impact of Spanish white varietals in a powerful blend. ”
