El Jardin de las Iguales

2016 Macabeo

BLEND | 100% Macabeo

VINEYARDS | Handpicked grapes from a dry-farmed, organic vineyard (El Jardin de las Iguales) with 80-100-year-old vines. The soils are limestone and blue slate and range from 400-1030 meters elevation (this vineyard is extreme!).

WINEMAKING | Wild yeast primary and malolactic fermentation followed by sixteen months aging in demi-muid François Frères oak barrels from Hospices de Beaune.

PRESS | 94 WA
“It has great varietal character and lots of complexity, even if it still feels very young. The palate has electric acidity and great depth of flavor, with good weight and is balanced. I also sampled 2017 from the barrel and the wine is very lively, but seeing how 2016 has improved I think they need time. In fact, this 2016 is not going to be released until the end of 2019 and 2017 should not be sold until the end of 2020.” - Luis Gutierrez
