Macabeo "Microcosmico", Bodegas Frontonio 2018 (Aragon, Spain)

100% Macabeo hand harvested from old vines which are dry farmed organically on hillside vineyards in a grey chalky soil composed of clay and limestone. It is fermented in tank spontaneously and aged in both tank and used barrels with battonage (stirring of lees) for texture. This is a sunny, dry region with very little rain and a prevailing wind called the Cierzo. Medium to full bodied and textured with notes of orchard fruit and crushed white flowers.
