Vineyards and vinification
Old Macabeu vineyards cultivated in organic agriculture and located in the Nou de Gaià, municipality of Tarragona, about 4 km in a straight line to the Mediterranean Sea. The soils are generally low-fertility sandy loam. Once harvested, the grapes are skimmed and stored in stainless steel tanks to begin fermentation and maceration. The duration of fermentation with the skins is 35 days between 14 and 15ºC. Once the maceration is over, the grapes are pressed, separating the wine from low pressures from the high pressure one called "press wine". This wine at low pressures is intended for making Mèdol Selecció wine. Once the process is over, the lees are mixed once a week for smoothness and fat. No clarifiers or stabilizers are added. The duration of aging with the lees for the 2019 harvest was 9 months. The wine is bottled with a small percentage of lees to improve the evolution of the wine over time. It is advisable to decant the wine to remove lees. It is a wine free of preservatives, a wine free of added sulfites, only grapes, more natural impossible!
The varietal aroma contains aromas of hay, citrus, and white flowers. We also find sweet nuances: toasted background, cinnamon, caramel, quince, honey… The mouthfeel is fresh, structured, with marked tannins and nerve due to its citrus touches. At the end of the mouth, the presence of honey and anise stands out, as well as the long aftertaste.
Recommended consumption temperature 7-9 ºC.
