2022 Parajes del Valle Macabeo Maceration (Orange Wine)

£18.25 inc. VAT

Now here’s a fun and funky skin contact Macabeo from DO Manchuela in Castilla La Mancha and north of Jumilla

The soil is composed of clay on limestone and the average height of the vineyards are between 600-700 metres.

Parajes del Valle is a bright, new, exciting winery, established in 2018. From day one their wines have been in the young but experienced hands of Maria Jover, a 28 year old winemaker who counts Vegas Sicilia as a previous employer. Her modern views to winemaking are transforming the wines of the area. The certified organic Monastrell grapes all come from old vines (15-40 years) split across four plots.

Grapes are hand-harvested then carefully selected at the winery. Spontaneous fermentation with wild native yeasts. Fermentation on skins in 25000 kg deposits in concrete tank for 15 days. Minimal sulphur added after fermentation. The wine is kept in concrete tanks until bottling.

The aroma of this is as enticing as the colour with an orange citrus nose of tangerine and cantaloupe melon. Nice and grippy on the palate with white nut, along with some citrus and candied fruit notes. Great fresh acidity, matches the structure with a dry finish.

Great with some Comté and cured meat.
