Costador 2019 Metamorphika Orange Macabeu
Gold-amber in colour, with aromas of apricot, mango, orange zest, wildflowers, candied ginger and a trace of toffee. Orange zest, dried apricot, clover honey, nectarine, lemon, ginger and dusty clay minerality are accented by fresh acidity. Mango, summer woods and a nutty streak linger between each creamy sip.
00% Macabeu Brisat
Conca de Barberà DO
Estate Bottled by Joan Franquet
'Brisat' is the Catalan word for orange wine. Metamorphika is a project produced by Joan Franquet of Costador located in Conca de Barberà, Tarragona. This wine is made using Macabeo grapes from sixty-year-old vines grown in white clay/calcareous soil on singular mountain vineyards at 800m altitude. Beginning and ending its journey in clay; immediately after harvest, 50% of the grapes are pressed and passed to large Tinaja (amphorae) with their skins. The other 50% of grapes are destemmed and the berries places whole in separate amphora. The juice spends six weeks on skins, where the fermentation takes place, before being passed by gravity to old French oak and foudre barrels for seven months. It is then bottled in ceramic with a wax seal to finish its ageing process.
