Costador - Joan Franquet - Metamorphika Macabeu Orange Brisat - 2021 - 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. Soft dynamic maceration lasts around 12 weeks. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in clay amphorae (300-2500L), using indigenous yeasts 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. Unfined. No added sulphites.
