Certified Organic/dry-farmed blend of 90% Macabeo, 10% Sauvignon Blanc (co-ferment).
Multiple small lots, scattered across the high elevation calcareous soils of Requena, are what defines the quality of our wines. Warm days give ample ripeness, but are chased away with very cool nights which preserve acidity. The Macabeo vine age is 40yrs on average, and the SB was planted in the 90’s. The most unique quality of Requena is it’s high elevation, where the UV spectrum allows phenolic development to fulfill at low sugar levels. Basically that means great flavor at low alcohol.
Hand-picked at night to retain freshness, a majority of the fruit is destemmed into inox where it soaks overnight before pressing the next morning. Native (pied du cuve) co-fermentation occurs in tank, where the wine will age on lees for 9-10 months. No additions except SO2. Unfined, filtered, vegan.
