Costador - Joan Franquet - Metamorphika Macabeu Orange Brisat - 2017 - DO Conca de Barberà
From vines around 70 years old planted on 1.5 hectares of clay, stony and calcareous soils, the grapes are hand-harvested at the end of September, intensely sorted and then de-stemmed. Maceration lasts around eight weeks before spontaneous fermentation takes place in clay amphorae (300-2500L), using indigenous yeasts, for eight weeks under temperature control. The wine is then moved to used barrels (200-600L) and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation where it rests on lees for seven months, stirring every day in the beginning with inert gas until the wine is protected. Unfiltered.
