La Gorda Yori was initially made from Moscatel (thus the name, which means “fat and wide” due to the grape’s size), but as of 2018 now comes from a dry-farmed parcel of Chenin Blanc planted in the 1980’s on granitic soils in Tecate, which was abandoned a few years after planting and recently revived by the Bichi team. The grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed, and fermented with wild yeasts in concrete tinajas(amphoras), with 35 days of skin contact before pressing, and bottled without fining or filtration and only a minimal dose of SO2. This is an orange wine with some grip, but also offers beautiful aromatics of herbs, sandalwood and orchard fruit balanced with refreshing acidity. Extremely limited - only 100 cases available worldwide, and we got one of 'em!
