Entero, Old Vine Macabeo, DO Manchuela, Spain, 2021
Our winemaking team often work with local co-operatives to identify particular vineyards and wines of great character. Entero is just one of these projects where we have worked together with a co-operative in Manchuela and identified a source of superb old vine Macabeo, grown organically.
The Macabeo fruit comes from 10 to 30 year old vineyards sited on calcareous clay soils in the DO Manchuela. The climate here is Mediterranean in nature with dry summers and mild, wet winters.
After the harvest is in, the grapes are crushed and the juice fermented in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of up to 20ºC. To ensure plenty of varietal notes, the wine undergoes lees contact and battonage for 15 days.
No oak ageing
This organically produced Macabeo has fragrant floral and tropical fruit aromas, well balanced acidity and characteristic varietal flavours which echo the aromas. This is a clean and crisp easy drinking wine.
Fish, soft cheese. Greek salads.
