peach, orange, delicate white flowers, warm spices but still dry and a lasting minerality. such a beautiful wine in a beautiful clay bottle.

costador, run by joan franquet, works only using organic and biodynamic practices on a singular mountain where there are very old vineyards. the vineyards are very old, the majority of them between 60 to 110 year, spanning different “terroirs” (slate, clay and limestone) and at altitudes between 400 to 800 meters. with the high contrast of temperatures the grapes can mature for long periods allowing the preservation of freshness and acidity.

WINEMAKING: from vines around 70-80 years old planted to four hectares of clay, stony and calcareous soils, the grapes are hand-harvested at the end of september with intense sorting. maceration lasts a minimum of 12 weeks with 50% whole-cluster and the rest de-stemmed. spontaneous fermentation takes place in clay amphorae (300-3500L), using indigenous yeasts, between 4-6 weeks without temperature control. the wine rests on lees for three months with stirring once a day in the beginning and then once a week. aged for four months in clay amphora. unfined and unfiltered.
