MARKO SKIN is a hand-made selection of the best grapes from the best and oldest vines of the property.
The vineyards are located in the village of Kortezubi, a little old town in Bizkaia, famous for its prehistoric caves which form a Unesco World Heritage Site. The vineyard soil is composed of calcareous clay.
After 8 days of skin contact in 300 litre amphorae, the skins are removed and the wine is left to ferment. It is then transferred to 225 litre French oak barrel to age for 8 months in contact with its lees. The wine is bottled unfiltered.
Character (notes from producer)
Marko Skin shows aroma ́s of quince and baked apple. On the palate the lively acidity is well balanced by flavours of caramalized orange peel and dried apricot.
The name Skin clearly refers to the skin contact this wine has been given. In the label this is depicted as a skinless face, accompanied by the phrase “Your skin attracts me with the gravity of the entire cosmos which outside suffers its impenetrable black eternity,” by Nicarguan poet Giaconda Belli.
