2019 Frank Cornelissen MunJebel Bianco
The 2020 vintage has been very good; a welcome gift from mother nature. The harvest went well and wines are tasting very good. The new equipment has worked really well to be able to stay on top of things in terms of spot-on working in the cellar in a controlled way.
Our first white wine started out as an orange wine, fermented with the skins for an extended period. I liked the tactile feeling and density, but missed the finesse and precision of the classic French white wines from for example the Loire. With the vintage 2015 I changed our technique to search for the purity and flavors of Etna which evolved in maintaining a short period of skin contact and aging our white wines for an extended period in the coldest part of our cellar before bottling. The obtained elegance, purity and density makes this wine very suited to accompany a wide variety of dishes and cuisine, from fish to white meat.
