Low crop, high levels of vineyard vigilance, organic growing techniques, picked in the cooler hours of the day (mornings) and packed into small crates, begins a process of meticulous winemaking. The grapes then go through several selection passes, followed by ‘must’ chilling and fermentation in stainless steel.
Macabeo (also known as Viura) is cultivated all over Spain. It is sometimes criticized for being on the neutral side, but it is capable of yielding wines with finesse, good aromatics and an herby, spicy nose. It is a vine of medium strength with a good yield; large bunches with compact, thin-skinned berries.
Fresh-cut fruit: pineapple, apple, grapefruit and a white floral top-note. 100% varietal on the palate; a creamy open feel, and a tweak of nutty acid/earth definition. Simple, gentle and harmonious, perfect house wine style.
