3 Macabeus

Traditionally used as a blending grape in the sparkling wines of Northeastern Spain, Macabeu when vinified as a dry white is an absolute pleasure to drink. This effort by Albet I Noya is sourced from 3 different tiny estate-owned single vineyards with vines nearly 50 years of age. Tiny yields, certified organic farming, and non-interventionist winemaking create a truly special bottle. Drink immediately and over the next 2-3 years. White flowers, nutmeg, and fresh peach aromas inform the nose of this crisp,vibrant effort. Racy and vibrant on the palate with plenty of ripe green fruits, impeccable balance, and herbal complexity. This nicely proportioned wine has a clean, refreshing finish that lingers on and on. Pairs nicely with traditional Catalan seafood dishes featuring fresh olive oil and herbs.
