The Vibe: Macabeo, white, medium, complex, straw, hay bales, lemon pie, barnyard.
Friends Would Say: A really complex, deep and brooding number, this wine has bountiful tasting notes and will give you a lot of wine for your time! It has a good balance of organic elements without being overly natural. You can tell that there has been little intervention into the natural way of things with this wine. On nose you may get heady wafts of fresh cut grass and wild flowers whilst on the palette you’ll taste an all round smooth quality with a heighted acidity to bring freshness and clarity. Its a wine that will treat you well but will take years to unpack!
The Banter: This wine has a very rustic feeling with very little intervention. The wine is grown in clay and limestone soil and stored in cement stainless steel vats. This creates a complex textured white with honeysuckle notes and a long buttery finish with great acidity.
The First Date?: This is a real gem for people who like their natural vibes.
