Empreinte Tradition 2013

One of the interesting wines on offer at Territorio Era and one I have been back to a couple of times, this is a 2013 “Tradition” Cotes du Jura – 60% savagnin (minerals and acidity) and 40% chardonnay (body) with three years under flor.

It has a nice freshness to it – the fresh yeastiness of raw almonds, green apples and unbaked bread, a slightly mineral palate and finish. Doesn’t have the mineral power of its palomino cousins from Sanlucar and Jerez but I like the freshness and the fruit. Very drinkable indeed.
