COSTADOR TERROIRS MEDITERRANI, PRESA ROMANA 1905, 2017
White, Macabeu (100%)
This high elevation single plot of ancient (planted in 1905) Macabeu was discovered by Joan in 2015 when each vine was producing only a small handful of grapes per vine. With some careful pruning and biodynamic treatments, he has managed to bring the vines back to health. The whole bunches are pressed directly and the wine is fermented partially in steel deposit, partially in amphora before undergoing 7 months elevage in oak barrels. Toasted umami notes dance balance beautifully with this wines ripe fruits and acidity.
