Donnafugata, Passito di Ben Rye, Pantelleria No Reserve

Description

A modern take on the classic Moscato Passito, the name Ben Ryé derives from the Arabic `Son of the Wind`, after the wind which sweeps round the island. The Zibibbo vines are planted in the traditional style in hollows in the ground and pruned short and cover 68 hectares. Vines are over 100 years old and are ungrafted. Soils are volcanic in origin, very loose and mineral rich. Yields are approximately four tonnes per hectare. Vintage information On Pantelleria the Zibibbo harvest began on 18th August in the Martingana vineyard, where traditionally, the grapes are the first to ripen. The harvest concluded on 19th September in the Ghirlanda vineyard. On Pantelleria, the year was less productive than 2009, especially in the vineyards hit by strong winds at blossom time. Vinification Grapes from the later ripening vineyards were chilled and pressed with the dried grapes added at intervals during fermentation, which took place in temperature controlled stainless steel. The wine remained in stainless steel for four months, followed by six months in bottle after blending. Four kilos of grapes produce 1 litre of Ben Ryé. Total production is approximately 80,000 bottles. Tasting Notes Bright, amber with striking notes of ripe fruit, apricot and peach on the nose that harmoniously blend with salt and mineral nuances. It is sweet and full-flavoured, with a full-bodied mouth feel perfectly balanced by refreshing acidity. A long, elegant finish.
